DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

Drug Enforcement Administration

 

Controlled Substances: Established 1994 Aggregate Production 
Quota

AGENCY: Drug Enforcement Administration, DOJ.

ACTION: Notice of established 1994 aggregate production quotas.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice establishes 1994 aggregate production quotas for 
controlled substances in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act.

DATE: This order is effective January 3, 1994.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Howard McClain, Jr., Chief, Drug & Chemical Evaluation Section, Drug 
Enforcement Administration, Washington, DC 20537, Telephone: (202) 307-
7183.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act 
(CSA) (21 U.S.C. 826) requires that the Attorney General establish 
aggregate production quotas for all controlled substances in Schedule I 
and II each year. This responsibility has been delegated to the 
Administrator of the DEA pursuant to Sec. 0.100 of Title 28 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations.
    On October 8, 1993, a notice of the proposed 1994 aggregate 
production quotas for certain Schedule I controlled substances was 
published in the Federal Register (58 FR 52510). All interested persons 
were invited to comment on or object to these proposed aggregate 
production quotas on or before November 8, 1993. No comments or 
objections were received.
    This notice is not a significant regulatory action and therefore 
has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget pursuant 
to Executive Order 12866.
    This action has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and 
criteria contained in the Executive Order 12612 and it has been 
determined that this matter does not have sufficient federalism 
implications to warrant the preparation of a Federalism Assessment.
    The Administrator hereby certifies that this matter will have no 
significant impact upon small entities within the meaning of and intent 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq. The 
establishment of annual production quotas for Schedules I and II 
controlled substances is mandated by law and by the international 
commitments of the United States. Such quotas impact predominantly upon 
major manufacturers of the affected controlled substances.
    Therefore, under the authority vested in the Attorney General by 
section 306 of the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 (21 U.S.C. 826) 
and delegated to the Administrator by Sec. 0.100 of title 28 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations, the Administrator of the DEA hereby 
establishes the 1994 aggregate production quotas for the following 
controlled substances, expressed in grams of anhydrous base, be 
established as follows:

                      Basic class                           1994 quotas 
                                                            (in grams)

Acting Administrator of Drug Enforcement.
