Background Section 306 of the CSA (21 U.S.C. 826) requires that the Attorney General establish aggregate production quotas for each basic class of controlled substance listed in schedules I and II each year. This responsibility has been delegated to the Administrator of the DEA by 28 CFR 0.100. The Administrator, in turn, has redelegated this function to the Deputy Administrator, pursuant to 28 CFR 0.104. The DEA established the 2014 aggregate production quotas for substances in schedules I and II on September 9, 2013 (78 FR 55099). Subsequently, on October 10, 2013, the DEA published in the Federal Register a notice of intent to temporarily place three synthetic phenethylamines (25INBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and 25B-NBOMe) in schedule I of the CSA (78 FR 61991). On November 15, 2013, the DEA published in the Federal Register a final order to temporarily place these three synthetic phenethylamines in schedule I of the CSA (78 FR 68716), making all regulations pertaining to schedule I controlled substances applicable to the manufacture of these three synthetic phenethylamines, including the establishment of an aggregate production quota pursuant to 21 CFR 1303.11. 25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and 25BNBOMe were non-controlled substances when the aggregate production quotas for schedule I and II substances were established, therefore, no aggregate production quotas for 25I-NBOMe, 25CNBOMe, and 25B-NBOMe were established at that time. In determining the 2014 aggregate production quotas of these three phenethylamines, the Deputy Administrator considered the following factors in accordance with 21 U.S.C. 826(a) and 21 CFR 1303.11: (1) Total estimated net disposal of each substance by all manufacturers; (2) estimated trends in the national rate of net disposal; (3) total estimated inventories of the basic class and of all substances manufactured from the class; (4) projected demand for each class as indicated by procurement quotas requested pursuant to 21 CFR 1303.12; and (5) other factors affecting medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States and lawful export requirements, as the Deputy Administrator finds relevant. These quotas do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes. The Deputy Administrator, therefore, proposes that the year 2014 aggregate production quotas for the following temporarily controlled schedule I controlled substances, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid or base, be established as follows: Proposed 2014 quota Basic class–schedule I 2-(4-bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25B-NBOMe; 2C-B-NBOMe; 25B; Cimbi-36) ............................. 2-(4-chloro-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25C-NBOMe; 2C-C-NBOMe; 25C; Cimbi-82) ............................ 2-(4-iodo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25I-NBOMe; 2C-I-NBOMe; 25I; Cimbi-5) ...................................... mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Comments Pursuant to 21 CFR 1303.11, any interested person may submit written comments on or objections to these proposed determinations. Based on comments received in response to this Notice, the Deputy Administrator may hold a public hearing on one or more issues raised. In the event the Deputy Administrator decides in his sole discretion to hold such a hearing, the Deputy Administrator will publish a notice of any such hearing in the Federal Register. After consideration of any comments and after a hearing, if one is held, the Deputy Administrator will publish in the Federal Register a Final Order establishing the 2014 aggregate production quota for 25I-NBOMe, 25CNBOMe, and 25B-NBOMe.

Controlled Substances: 2014 Proposed Aggregate Production Quota 
for Three Temporarily Controlled Synthetic Phenethylamines

AGENCY: Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Department of Justice.

ACTION: Notice of a proposed 2014 aggregate production quota for three 
synthetic phenethylamines.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Three synthetic phenethylamines 2-(4-iodo-2,5-
dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25I-NBOMe; 2C-I-NBOMe; 
25I; Cimbi-5), 2-(4-chloro-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-
methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25C-NBOMe; 2C-C-NBOMe; 25C; Cimbi-82), and 2-
(4-bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-methoxybenzyl)ethanamine (25B-NBOMe; 
2C-B-NBOMe; 25B; Cimbi-36) were temporarily placed in schedule I of the 
Controlled Substances Act (CSA) by a final order published by the Drug 
Enforcement Administration (DEA) on November 15, 2013 (78 FR 68716). 
This means that any manufacturer that wishes to manufacture 25I-NBOMe, 
25C-NBOMe, or 25B-NBOMe after November 15, 2013, must be registered 
with the DEA and have obtained a manufacturing quota for 25I-NBOMe, 
25C-NBOMe, or 25B-NBOMe pursuant to 21 CFR part 1303. The DEA cannot 
issue individual manufacturing quotas for 25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, or 25B-
NBOMe unless and until it establishes an aggregate production quota. 
Therefore, this notice proposes a 2014 aggregate production quota for 
25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and 25B-NBOMe.

Background

    Section 306 of the CSA (21 U.S.C. 826) requires that the Attorney 
General establish aggregate production quotas for each basic class of 
controlled substance listed in schedules I and II each year. This 
responsibility has been delegated to the Administrator of the DEA by 28 
CFR 0.100. The Administrator, in turn, has redelegated this function to 
the Deputy Administrator, pursuant to 28 CFR 0.104.
    The DEA established the 2014 aggregate production quotas for 
substances in schedules I and II on September 9, 2013 (78 FR 55099). 
Subsequently, on October 10, 2013, the DEA published in the Federal 
Register a notice of intent to temporarily place three synthetic 
phenethylamines (25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and 25B-NBOMe) in schedule I of 
the CSA (78 FR 61991). On November 15, 2013, the DEA published in the 
Federal Register a final order to temporarily place these three 
synthetic phenethylamines in schedule I of the CSA (78 FR 68716), 
making all regulations pertaining to schedule I controlled substances 
applicable to the manufacture of these three synthetic phenethylamines, 
including the establishment of an aggregate production quota pursuant 
to 21 CFR 1303.11.
    25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and 25B-NBOMe were non-controlled substances 
when the aggregate production quotas for schedule I and II substances 
were established, therefore, no aggregate production quotas for 25I-
NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and 25B-NBOMe were established at that time.
    In determining the 2014 aggregate production quotas of these three 
phenethylamines, the Deputy Administrator considered the following 
factors in accordance with 21 U.S.C. 826(a) and 21 CFR 1303.11: (1) 
Total estimated net disposal of each substance by all manufacturers; 
(2) estimated trends in the national rate of net disposal; (3) total 
estimated inventories of the basic class and of all substances 
manufactured from the class; (4) projected demand for each class as 
indicated by procurement quotas requested pursuant to 21 CFR 1303.12; 
and (5) other factors affecting medical, scientific, research, and 
industrial needs of the United States and lawful export requirements, 
as the Deputy Administrator finds relevant. These quotas do not include 
imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes.
    The Deputy Administrator, therefore, proposes that the year 2014 
aggregate production quotas for the following temporarily controlled 
schedule I controlled substances, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid 
or base, be established as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Proposed
                   Basic class-schedule I                     2014 quota

Comments

    Pursuant to 21 CFR 1303.11, any interested person may submit 
written comments on or objections to these proposed determinations. 
Based on comments received in response to this Notice, the Deputy 
Administrator may hold a public hearing on one or more issues raised. 
In the event the Deputy Administrator decides in his sole discretion to 
hold such a hearing, the Deputy Administrator will publish a notice of 
any such hearing in the Federal Register. After consideration of any 
comments and after a hearing, if one is held, the Deputy Administrator 
will publish in the Federal Register a Final Order establishing the 
2014 aggregate production quota for 25I-NBOMe, 25C-NBOMe, and 25B-
NBOMe.
