Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 26 / Thursday, February 7, 2019 / Rules and Regulations name is ‘‘4-anilino-Nphenethylpiperidine’’. There is no existing chemical compound named ‘‘4-anilino-Nphenethyl-4-piperidine.’’ While chemists understood which compound was being controlled by the DEA due to the abbreviation ANPP and specific CASRN number, DEA is now correcting the listing in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) by revising 21 CFR 1308.12 to provide the correct name. Administrative Procedure Act The Administrative Procedure Act (APA) generally requires that agencies, prior to issuing a new rule, publish a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register. The APA also provides, however, that agencies may be exempt from this requirement when ‘‘the agency for good cause finds (and incorporates the finding and a brief statement of reasons therefore in the rules issued) that notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ 2 The name ‘‘4-anilino-N-phenethyl-4piperidine’’ is without meaning and no substance exists by that chemical name. The inclusion of the ‘‘-4’’ in the middle of the name is nonsensical. Because the correct Chemical Abstract Service Registry Number and abbreviation ‘‘ANPP’’ were given in the original rulemaking, chemists have understood which compound has been (and remains) controlled by DEA. There is no change as to what substance is controlled. Public notice and comment is thus unnecessary. For the same reasons that the DEA has determined that public notice and comment is unnecessary, the DEA also finds good cause to adopt an effective date that would be less than 30 days after the publication in the Federal Register pursuant to the APA. 5 U.S.C. 553(d). Accordingly, this amendment will be effective as of the date of publication in the Federal Register.
