Legal Authority Section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), 21 U.S.C. 826, requires the Attorney General to determine the total quantity and establish aggregate production quotas for each basic class of controlled substance listed in schedules I and II and for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine. This responsibility has been delegated to the Administrator of the DEA pursuant to 28 CFR 0.100(b). The Administrator, in turn, has redelegated that authority to the Deputy Administrator, pursuant to 28 CFR pt. 0 subpt. R, App. PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The DEA published the established aggregate production quotas for schedule I and II controlled substances and established assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine for 2014 in the Federal Register (78 FR 55099) on September 9, 2013. That notice stipulated that, in accordance with 21 CFR 1303.13 and 1315.13, all aggregate production quotas and assessments of annual need are subject to adjustment. Analysis for Proposed Adjusted 2014 Aggregate Production Quotas and Assessment of Annual Needs The DEA proposes to adjust the established 2014 aggregate production quotas for certain schedule I and II controlled substances to be manufactured in the United States in 2014 to provide for the estimated medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States, for lawful export requirements, and for the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. These quotas do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes. The DEA also proposes to adjust the established 2014 assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine to be manufactured in and imported to the United States in 2014 to provide for the estimated medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United States, lawful export requirements, and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. In proposing the adjustment, the DEA has taken into account the criteria that the DEA is required to consider in accordance with 21 CFR 1303.13 and 21 CFR 1315.13. The DEA determines whether to propose an adjustment of the aggregate production quotas for basic classes of schedule I and II controlled substances and assessment of annual needs for ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine by considering: (1) Changes in the demand for that class or chemical, changes in the national rate of net disposal of the class or chemical, and changes in the rate of net disposal of the class or chemical by registrants holding individual manufacturing quotas for the class; (2) whether any increased demand for that class or chemical, the national and/or individual rates of net disposal of that class or chemical are temporary, short term, or long term; (3) whether any increased demand for that class or chemical can be met through existing inventories, increased individual manufacturing quotas, or increased E:\FR\FM\12JNN1.SGM 12JNN1 33781 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 113 / Thursday, June 12, 2014 / Notices importation, without increasing the aggregate production quota; (4) whether any decreased demand for that class or chemical will result in excessive inventory accumulation by all persons registered to handle that class or chemical; and (5) other factors affecting medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs in the United States and lawful export requirements, as the Deputy Administrator finds relevant. The DEA also considered updated information obtained from 2013 yearend inventories, 2013 disposition data submitted by quota applicants, estimates of the medical needs of the United States, product development, and other information made available to the DEA after the initial aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs had been established. Other factors the DEA considered in calculating the aggregate production quotas, but not the assessment of annual needs, include product development requirements of both bulk and finished dosage form manufacturers, and other pertinent information. In determining the proposed adjusted 2014 assessment of annual needs, the DEA used the calculation methodology previously described in the 2010 and 2011 established assessment of annual needs (74 FR 60294, Nov. 20, 2009, and 75 FR 79407, Dec. 20, 2010, respectively). As described in the previously published notice establishing the 2014 aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs, the DEA has specifically considered that inventory allowances granted to individual manufacturers may not always result in the availability of sufficient quantities to maintain an adequate reserve stock pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 826(a), as intended. See 21 CFR 1303.24. This would be concerning if a natural disaster or other unforeseen event resulted in substantial disruption to the amount of controlled substances available to provide for legitimate public need. As such, the DEA has included in all proposed adjusted schedule II controlled substance aggregate production quotas, and certain proposed adjusted schedule I controlled substance aggregate production quotas, an additional 25% of the estimated medical, scientific, and research needs as part of the amount necessary to ensure the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. The resulting adjusted established aggregate production quotas will reflect these included amounts. This action will not affect the ability of manufacturers to maintain inventory allowances as specified by regulation. The DEA expects that maintaining this reserve in certain established aggregate production quotas will mitigate adverse public effects if an unforeseen event resulted in substantial disruption to the amount of controlled substances available to provide for legitimate public need, as determined by the DEA. The DEA does not anticipate utilizing the reserve in the absence of these circumstances. The Deputy Administrator, therefore, proposes to adjust the 2014 aggregate production quotas for certain schedule I and II controlled substances and assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine, expressed in grams of anhydrous acid or base, as follows: Previously established 2014 quotas (g) Basic class Proposed adjusted 2014 quotas (g) rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Schedule I (1-Pentyl-1H-indol-3-yl)(2,2,3,3-tetramethylcyclopropyl)methanone (UR-144) ....................................................

Legal Authority

    Section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), 21 U.S.C. 826, 
requires the Attorney General to determine the total quantity and 
establish aggregate production quotas for each basic class of 
controlled substance listed in schedules I and II and for the list I 
chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine. This 
responsibility has been delegated to the Administrator of the DEA 
pursuant to 28 CFR 0.100(b). The Administrator, in turn, has 
redelegated that authority to the Deputy Administrator, pursuant to 28 
CFR pt. 0 subpt. R, App.
    The DEA published the established aggregate production quotas for 
schedule I and II controlled substances and established assessment of 
annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and 
phenylpropanolamine for 2014 in the Federal Register (78 FR 55099) on 
September 9, 2013. That notice stipulated that, in accordance with 21 
CFR 1303.13 and 1315.13, all aggregate production quotas and 
assessments of annual need are subject to adjustment.

Analysis for Proposed Adjusted 2014 Aggregate Production Quotas and 
Assessment of Annual Needs

    The DEA proposes to adjust the established 2014 aggregate 
production quotas for certain schedule I and II controlled substances 
to be manufactured in the United States in 2014 to provide for the 
estimated medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the 
United States, for lawful export requirements, and for the 
establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. These quotas do not 
include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial 
processes. The DEA also proposes to adjust the established 2014 
assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, 
pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine to be manufactured in and 
imported to the United States in 2014 to provide for the estimated 
medical, scientific, research, and industrial needs of the United 
States, lawful export requirements, and the establishment and 
maintenance of reserve stocks.
    In proposing the adjustment, the DEA has taken into account the 
criteria that the DEA is required to consider in accordance with 21 CFR 
1303.13 and 21 CFR 1315.13. The DEA determines whether to propose an 
adjustment of the aggregate production quotas for basic classes of 
schedule I and II controlled substances and assessment of annual needs 
for ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine by considering: 
(1) Changes in the demand for that class or chemical, changes in the 
national rate of net disposal of the class or chemical, and changes in 
the rate of net disposal of the class or chemical by registrants 
holding individual manufacturing quotas for the class; (2) whether any 
increased demand for that class or chemical, the national and/or 
individual rates of net disposal of that class or chemical are 
temporary, short term, or long term; (3) whether any increased demand 
for that class or chemical can be met through existing inventories, 
increased individual manufacturing quotas, or increased

[[Page 33781]]

importation, without increasing the aggregate production quota; (4) 
whether any decreased demand for that class or chemical will result in 
excessive inventory accumulation by all persons registered to handle 
that class or chemical; and (5) other factors affecting medical, 
scientific, research, and industrial needs in the United States and 
lawful export requirements, as the Deputy Administrator finds relevant.
    The DEA also considered updated information obtained from 2013 
year-end inventories, 2013 disposition data submitted by quota 
applicants, estimates of the medical needs of the United States, 
product development, and other information made available to the DEA 
after the initial aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual 
needs had been established. Other factors the DEA considered in 
calculating the aggregate production quotas, but not the assessment of 
annual needs, include product development requirements of both bulk and 
finished dosage form manufacturers, and other pertinent information. In 
determining the proposed adjusted 2014 assessment of annual needs, the 
DEA used the calculation methodology previously described in the 2010 
and 2011 established assessment of annual needs (74 FR 60294, Nov. 20, 
2009, and 75 FR 79407, Dec. 20, 2010, respectively).
    As described in the previously published notice establishing the 
2014 aggregate production quotas and assessment of annual needs, the 
DEA has specifically considered that inventory allowances granted to 
individual manufacturers may not always result in the availability of 
sufficient quantities to maintain an adequate reserve stock pursuant to 
21 U.S.C. 826(a), as intended. See 21 CFR 1303.24. This would be 
concerning if a natural disaster or other unforeseen event resulted in 
substantial disruption to the amount of controlled substances available 
to provide for legitimate public need. As such, the DEA has included in 
all proposed adjusted schedule II controlled substance aggregate 
production quotas, and certain proposed adjusted schedule I controlled 
substance aggregate production quotas, an additional 25% of the 
estimated medical, scientific, and research needs as part of the amount 
necessary to ensure the establishment and maintenance of reserve 
stocks. The resulting adjusted established aggregate production quotas 
will reflect these included amounts. This action will not affect the 
ability of manufacturers to maintain inventory allowances as specified 
by regulation. The DEA expects that maintaining this reserve in certain 
established aggregate production quotas will mitigate adverse public 
effects if an unforeseen event resulted in substantial disruption to 
the amount of controlled substances available to provide for legitimate 
public need, as determined by the DEA. The DEA does not anticipate 
utilizing the reserve in the absence of these circumstances.
    The Deputy Administrator, therefore, proposes to adjust the 2014 
aggregate production quotas for certain schedule I and II controlled 
substances and assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals 
ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine, expressed in grams 
of anhydrous acid or base, as follows:
