Introduction On June 19, 2019, the Assistant Administrator, Diversion Control Division, Drug Enforcement Administration (hereinafter, DEA or Government), issued an Order to Show Cause (hereinafter, OSC) to Uvienome Sakor, N.P., also known as Uvienome Linda Sakor, N.P., (hereinafter, Respondent) of Douglasville, Georgia. OSC, at 1. The OSC proposed the revocation of Respondent’s Certificate of Registration No. MS1972101, the denial of any pending applications for renewal or modification of that registration, and the denial of any applications for additional DEA registrations for two reasons. Id. First, it alleged that Respondent ‘‘materially falsified multiple renewal applications . . . filed with the DEA.’’ Id. (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(1)). Second, it alleged that Respondent ‘‘pled guilty to a felony relating to controlled substances.’’ OSC, at 1 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(2)). Specifically, the OSC alleged that Respondent entered a guilty plea in Georgia Superior Court to one count of Forgery in the First Degree ‘‘for attempting to fill a forged controlled substance prescription.’’ OSC, at 2. This OSC allegation acknowledged that, under Georgia’s First Offender Act, Respondent was discharged from probation, was exonerated of any criminal purpose, and is not considered to have a criminal conviction. Id. VerDate Sep<11>2014 00:30 Sep 04, 2021 Jkt 253001 Second, the OSC alleged that Respondent entered into a Consent Order with the Georgia Board of Nursing (hereinafter, GBN) for her failure to report her Forgery guilty plea as required by Georgia statute. Id. It also alleged that the Consent Order placed Respondent on probation for two years. Id. Third, the OSC alleged that Respondent submitted three materially false registration renewal applications after her guilty plea because she did not respond affirmatively to the first Liability question. Id. at 2–3. Similarly, the OSC alleged that Respondent submitted two materially false registration renewal applications after the beginning of the Consent Order’s probationary period because she did not respond affirmatively to the third Liability question. Id. at 3. Fourth, the OSC alleged that Respondent’s guilty plea to the state Forgery charge implicates 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(2). Id. The OSC notified Respondent of the right to request a hearing on the allegations or to submit a written statement, while waiving the right to a hearing, the procedures for electing each option, and the consequences for failing to elect either option. Id. at 4 (citing 21 CFR 1301.43). The OSC also notified Respondent of the opportunity to submit a corrective action plan. OSC, at 4–5 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(c)(2)(C)). The Government forwarded its Request for Final Agency Action (hereinafter, RFAA), along with the evidentiary record, to this office on September 5, 2019. Attached to the RFAA is the Declaration of a DEA Diversion Investigator (hereinafter, DI) that is signed and sworn to under penalty of perjury. RFAA Exhibit (hereinafter, RFAAX) 6 (Declaration of Diversion Investigator, dated September 5, 2019 (hereinafter, DI Declaration)). The DI Declaration states that the DI ‘‘personally served’’ the OSC on Respondent at her registered location on June 24, 2019. Id. at 3. I credit the DI’s sworn statement. Respondent waived her right to a hearing and filed a written statement. RFAAX 3 (Respondent’s Written Statement, dated July 17, 2019 (hereinafter, Written Statement)), at 1. Her Written Statement explicitly references the OSC. Id. Based on all of the evidence in the record, I find that the Government’s service of the OSC was legally sufficient. In addition, based on all of the evidence in the record, I find that Respondent timely filed her Written Statement. 21 CFR 1301.43. PO 00000 Frm 00162 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 U:\07SEN1.SGM 50173 I issue this Decision and Order based on the Government’s submission, which includes the Written Statement, and is the entire record before me. 21 CFR 1301.43(e).

RFAAX 1 (Certification of Registration History, dated September 4, 2019), at 1. Pursuant to this registration, Respondent is authorized to dispense controlled substances in schedules III through V as a MLP-nurse practitioner.1 Id. Respondent’s registration expired on February 28, 2021, and is in an ‘‘active pending status.’’ Id. B. The Investigation of Respondent According to the DI assigned to this matter, ‘‘a large number of prescriptions that had been issued by . . . [Respondent] had been filled’’ at a pharmacy the DI was investigating, and Respondent is the sister of the pharmacy’s owner. RFAAX 6, at 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Scope.--For purposes of these investigations, Commerce has defined 
the subject merchandise as ``pentafluoroethane (R-125), or its chemical 
equivalent, regardless of form, type or purity level. R-125 has the 
Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number of 354-33-6 and the 
chemical formula C2HF5. R-125 is also referred to as Pentafluoroethane, 
Genetron HFC 125, Khladon 125, Suva 125, Freon 125, and Fc-125. R-125 
that has been blended with other products is included within the scope 
if such blends contain 85% or more by volume R-125, on an actual 
percentage basis. However, R-125 incorporated into a blend that 
conforms to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 34 is excluded from the scope of these 
investigations. When R-125 is blended with other products and otherwise 
falls under the scope of these investigations, only the R-125 component 
of the mixture is covered by the scope of these investigations.
    Subject merchandise also includes purified and unpurified R-125 
that is processed in a third country or otherwise outside the customs 
territory of the United States, including, but not limited to, 
purifying, blending, or any other processing that would not otherwise 
remove the merchandise from the scope of these investigations if 
performed in the country of manufacture of the in-scope R-125. The 
scope also includes R-125 that is commingled with R-125 from sources 
not subject to these investigations. Only the subject component of such 
commingled products is covered by the scope of these investigations.
    Excluded from the scope is merchandise covered by the scope of the 
antidumping order on Hydrofluorocarbon Blends from the People's 
Republic of China, including

Order).
    R-125 is entered under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United

scheduled pursuant to sections 705(b) and 731(b) of the Tariff Act of

preliminary determinations by Commerce that certain benefits which 
constitute subsidies within the meaning of Sec.  703 of the Act (19 
U.S.C. 1671b) are being provided to manufacturers, producers, or 
exporters in China of pentafluoroethane (r-125), and that such products
