Schedules of Controlled Substances: Removal of Samidorphan From Control
Document Number: 2020-26812
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-12-10
Agency: Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Justice
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) proposes to remove samidorphan (3-carboxamido-4-hydroxy naltrexone) and its salts from the schedules of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This scheduling action is pursuant to the CSA which requires that such actions be made on the record after opportunity for a hearing through formal rulemaking. Samidorphan is currently a schedule II controlled substance because it can be derived from opium alkaloids. This action would remove the regulatory controls and administrative, civil, and criminal sanctions applicable to controlled substances, including those specific to schedule II controlled substances, on persons who handle (manufacture, distribute, reverse distribute, dispense, conduct research, import, export, or conduct chemical analysis) or propose to handle samidorphan.
