Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005: Fee for Self-Certification for Regulated Sellers of Scheduled Listed Chemical Products
As part of its implementation of the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005 (CMEA), ``regulated sellers'' or persons and entities selling scheduled listed chemical products at retail locations are required to self-certify with DEA relative to certain requirements of the CMEA. The Diversion Control Program is required to recover the full costs of the certification process, under the Controlled Substances Act; as such the DEA is proposing to charge regulated sellers, who are not DEA registrants, a fee for self-certification.
Privacy Act of 1974: Implementation
The Department of Justice (DOJ), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), is exempting a Privacy Act system of records from the following subsections of the Privacy Act: (c)(3) and (4), (d)(1), (2), (3), and (4); (e)(1), (2), (3), (5), and (8); and (g), pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a (j) and (k). The Privacy Act system of records is the ``El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) Seizure System, (JUSTICE/DEA- 022).'' The exemptions are necessary to prevent the compromise of ongoing investigative efforts, to help ensure the integrity of law enforcement and investigatory information, to ensure third party privacy, and to protect the physical safety of sources of information and law enforcement personnel.
