ACTION: Final order. AGENCY: This final order establishes the final adjusted 2021 aggregate production quotas for controlled substances in schedules I and II of the Controlled Substances Act and the assessment of annual needs for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine. DATES: This order is effective November 15, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Scott A. Brinks, Regulatory Drafting and Policy Support Section, Diversion Control Division, Drug Enforcement Administration; Mailing Address: 8701 Morrissette Drive, Springfield, VA 22152, Telephone: (571) 362–3261. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Legal Authority Section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. 826) requires the Attorney General to establish aggregate production quotas (APQ) for each basic class of controlled substances listed in schedules I and II and for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine. The Attorney General has delegated this function to the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) pursuant to 28 CFR 0.100. Background DEA published the 2021 established APQ for controlled substances in PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63061 schedules I and II and for the assessment of annual needs (AAN) for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine in the Federal Register on November 30, 2020. 85 FR 76604. DEA is committed to preventing and limiting diversion by enforcing laws and regulations regarding controlled substances and the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine, while meeting the legitimate medical, scientific, and export needs of the United States. This notice stated that the Administrator would adjust, as needed, the established APQ in 2021 in accordance with 21 CFR 1303.13 and 21 CFR 1315.13. The 2021 proposed adjusted APQ for controlled substances in schedules I and II and AAN for the list I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, and phenylpropanolamine were subsequently published in the Federal Register on September 2, 2021, (86 FR 49346), after consideration of the criteria outlined in that notice. All interested persons were invited to comment on or object to the proposed APQs and AANs on or before October 4, 2021. Comments Received DEA received 27 timely comments in response to the September Federal Register notice from patients, DEAregistered entities, and non-DEA entities. The comments included appreciation of DEA’s response to the increased interest in research using hallucinogenic controlled substances, requests to increase the APQ for additional hallucinogenic controlled substances, requests to increase the APQ for select schedule II controlled substances, concerns regarding the inability to comment to the notice electronically for two weeks, and comments outside the scope of this final order. Issue: Commenters expressed appreciation of DEA’s flexibility in responding to the nationwide public interest in hallucinogenic controlled substances research. DEA Response: DEA acknowledges the expressions of appreciation to changes in the APQ for these controlled substances. The adjustments to select hallucinogenic schedule I controlled substances occurred after DEA received additional schedule I researcher protocols from DEA registered researchers and quota applications from DEA registered manufacturers. Issue: Commenters requested DEA to increase the APQ for Bufotenine, Dimethyltryptamine (DMT), N,NDimethyltryptamine, 5-Methoxy-N,N- E:\FR\FM\15NON1.SGM 15NON1
