Notice of Memorandum of Agreement, 3253-3254 [2019-01710]

Download as PDF 3253 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 28 / Monday, February 11, 2019 / Notices license . . . suspended [or] revoked . . . by competent State authority and is no longer authorized by State law to engage in the . . . dispensing of controlled substances.’’ Also, DEA has long held that the possession of authority to dispense controlled substances under the laws of the State in which a practitioner engages in professional practice is a fundamental condition for obtaining and maintaining a practitioner’s registration. See, e.g., James L. Hooper, 76 FR 71371 (2011), pet. for rev. denied, 481 Fed. Appx. 826 (4th Cir. 2012); see also Frederick Marsh Blanton, 43 FR 27616 (1978) (‘‘State authorization to dispense or otherwise handle controlled substances is a prerequisite to the issuance and maintenance of a Federal controlled substances registration.’’). This rule derives from the text of two provisions of the CSA. First, Congress defined ‘‘the term ‘practitioner’ [to] mean[ ] a . . . physician . . . or other person licensed, registered or otherwise permitted, by . . . the jurisdiction in which he practices . . . to distribute, dispense, [or] administer . . . a controlled substance in the course of professional practice.’’ 21 U.S.C. 802(21). Second, in setting the requirements for obtaining a practitioner’s registration, Congress directed that ‘‘[t]he Attorney General shall register practitioners . . . if the applicant is authorized to dispense . . . controlled substances under the laws of the State in which he practices.’’ 21 U.S.C. 823(f). Because Congress has clearly mandated that a practitioner possess state authority in order to be deemed a practitioner under the Act, DEA has long held that revocation of a practitioner’s registration is the appropriate sanction whenever he is no longer authorized to dispense controlled substances under the laws of the State in which he engages in professional practice. See, e.g., Calvin Ramsey, 76 FR 20034, 20036 (2011); Sheran Arden Yeates, M.D., 71 FR 39130, 39131 (2006); Dominick A. Ricci, 58 FR 51104, 51105 (1993); Bobby Watts, 53 FR 11919, 11920 (1988); Blanton, 43 FR 27616 (1978). Based on my finding that the OMBC revoked Respondent’s Osteopathic Physician’s and Surgeon’s License to practice medicine, I find that Respondent is currently without authority to dispense controlled substances under the laws of California, the State in which he is registered. Accord Christopher D. Owens, M.D., 83 FR 13143, 13145 & n.1 (2018) (citing Cal. Health & Safety Code §§ 11024, 11150, 11210, 11352, 2051, 2052). Here, there is no dispute over the material fact VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Feb 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 that Respondent is no longer currently authorized to dispense controlled substances in California, the State in which he is registered. Accordingly, Respondent is not entitled to maintain his DEA registration. I will therefore adopt the ALJ’s recommendation that I revoke Respondent’s registration. R.D., at 7. I will also deny any pending application to renew or to modify his registration, or any pending application for any other DEA registration in California, as requested in the Show Cause Order. Order to Show Cause, at 1. Order Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 823(f) and 824(a), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b), I order that DEA Certificate of Registration No. BS7367623, issued to Paul Surinder Singh, D.O., be, and it hereby is, revoked. I further order that any pending application of Paul Surinder Singh to renew or modify the above registration, or any pending application of Paul Surinder Singh for any other DEA registration in the State of California, be, and it hereby is, denied. This Order is effective March 13, 2019. Dated: January 17, 2019. Uttam Dhillon, Acting Administrator.
