(Source: Federal Register) [Excerpts.]
 
82 FR 8688-8689: Revision of Import and Export Requirements for Controlled Substances, Listed Chemicals, and Tableting and Encapsulating Machines, Including Changes To Implement the International Trade Data System (ITDS); Revision of Reporting Requirements for Domestic Transactions in Listed Chemicals and Tableting and Encapsulating Machines; and Technical Amendments
* AGENCY: Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Justice.
* ACTION: Final rule; delay of effective date.
* SUMMARY: On December 30, 2016, the Drug Enforcement Administration published a final rule to implement requirements associated with the International Trade Data System (ITDS) that will help streamline the export/import of tableting and encapsulating machines, controlled substances, and listed chemicals. That rule is scheduled to become effective January 30, 2017. In accordance with the memorandum of January 20, 2017, from the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, entitled “Regulatory Freeze Pending Review,” this action hereby temporarily delays until March 21, 2017, the effective date of the final rule entitled “Revision of Import and Export Requirements for Controlled Substances, Listed Chemicals, and Tableting and Encapsulating Machines, Including Changes to Implement the International Trade Data System (ITDS); Revision of Reporting Requirements for Domestic Transactions in Listed Chemicals and Tableting and Encapsulating Machines; and Technical Amendments” (RIN 1117-AB41) published in the Federal Register on December 30, 2016, at 81 FR 96992. The temporary delay in the effective date will allow Department of Justice officials an opportunity to review any potential questions of fact, law and policy raised by this regulation, consistent with the Chief of Staff’s memorandum of January 20, 2017.
* DATES: Effective Dates: This Final Rule is effective January 30, 2017. The effective date of the Final Rule amending 21 CFR parts 1300, 1301, 1302, 1303, 1304, 1308, 1309, 1310, 1312, 1313, 1314, 1315, 1316, and 1321 published in the Federal Register December 30, 2016, at 81 FR 96992 is delayed to March 21, 2017. However, compliance with the revisions to DEA regulations made by this rule is not required until July 31, 2017.
* FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael J. Lewis, Diversion Control Division, Drug Enforcement Administration; Mailing Address: 8701 Morrissette Drive, Springfield, Virginia 22152; Telephone: (202) 598-6812.
* SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is updating its regulations for the import and export of tableting and encapsulating machines, controlled substances, and listed chemicals, and its regulations relating to reports required for domestic transactions in listedchemicals, gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, and tableting and encapsulating machines. In accordance with Executive Order 13563, the DEA has reviewed its import and export regulations and reporting requirements for domestic transactions in listed chemicals (and gamma-hydroxybutyric acid) and tableting and encapsulating machines, and evaluated them for clarity, consistency, continued accuracy, and effectiveness. The amendments clarify certain policies and reflect current procedures and technological advancements. The amendments also allow for the implementation, as applicable to tableting and encapsulating machines, controlled substances, and listed chemicals, of the President’s Executive Order 13659 on streamlining the export/import process and requiring the government-wide utilization of the International Trade Data System (ITDS). This rule additionally contains amendments that implement recent changes to the Controlled Substances Import and Export Act for reexportation of controlled substances among members of the European Economic Area made by the Improving Regulatory Transparency for New Medical Therapies Act. The rule also includes additional substantive and technical and stylistic amendments. …
   In accordance with the memorandum of January 20, 2017, from the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, entitled “Regulatory Freeze Pending Review” this action hereby temporarily delays until March 21, 2017, the effective date of the final rule entitled “Revision of Import and Export Requirements for Controlled Substances, Listed Chemicals, and Tableting and Encapsulating Machines, Including Changes to Implement the International Trade Data System (ITDS); Revision of Reporting Requirements for Domestic Transactions in Listed Chemicals and Tableting and Encapsulating Machines; and Technical Amendments” (RIN 1117-AB41) published in the Federal Register on December 30, 2016, at 81 FR 96992.

The Drug Enforcement Administration has announced that the effective date of its final rule requiring the electronic submission through the Automated Commercial Environment of required data for the import and export of tableting and encapsulating machines, controlled substances, and listed chemicals has been delayed from Jan. 30 to March 21. In addition, compliance with this rule is now not required until 180 days after Jan. 30 (approximately July 30).

ENEDITOR’S NOTES

(Source: Editor) 

 
* Saul Alinsky ( Saul David Alinsky, 30 Jan 1909 – 12 Jun 1972, was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing. He is often noted for his 1971 book, Rules for Radicals, which includes as part of Alinsky’s personal acknowledgements, “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: . . . the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.”)
  – ” ‘The Prince’ was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. ‘Rules for Radicals’ is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.”
  – “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
 
* Walter Savage Landor (30 Jan 1775 – 17 Sep 1864, was an English writer and poet, best known for his novel Imaginary Conversations, and the poem Rose Aylmer.)
  – “Men, like nails, lose their usefulness when they lose their direction and begin to bend.”
 
Monday is Pun Day.

A friend of mine tried to annoy me with bird puns, so I told him that toucan play that game.
