Designation of Oripavine as a Basic Class of Controlled Substance; Correction
Document Number: E7-23759
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-12-10
Agency: Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Justice
On September 24, 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) published in the Federal Register a final rule (72 FR 54208) designating oripavine (3-O-demethylthebaine or 6,7,8,14-tetradehydro- 4,5-alpha-epoxy-6-methoxy-17-methylmorphinan-3-ol) as a basic class in schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The drug code for oripavine was inadvertently designated as 9335, a drug code which is already used to identify a schedule I controlled substance. This correction corrects that error and assigns a different drug code to oripavine.
