On September 20, 2002, the Deputy Administrator of the DEA published two separate final rules in the
The DEA has gathered and reviewed the available information regarding the pharmacology, chemistry, trafficking, actual abuse, pattern of abuse and the relative potential for abuse for BZP, TFMPP and 2C-T-7. The Administrator has submitted these data to the Assistant Secretary for Health, Department of Health and Human Services. In accordance with 21 U.S.C. 811(b), the Administrator has also requested a scientific and medical evaluation and a scheduling recommendation for BZP, TFMPP and 2C-T-7 from the Assistant Secretary for Health. Therefore, the temporary scheduling of BZP, TFMPP and 2C-T-7 which is due to expire on September 19, 2003, may be extended until March 19, 2004, or until proceedings initiated in accordance with 21 U.S.C. 811(a) are completed, whichever occurs first.
Pursuant to U.S.C. 811(h)(2) the Administrator hereby orders that the temporary scheduling of BZP, TFMPP and 2C-T-7 be extended until March 19, 2004, or until the proceedings initiated in accordance with 21 U.S.C. 811(a) are completed, whichever occurs first.
The Administrator of the DEA hereby certifies that extension of the temporary placement of BZP, TFMPP and 2C-T-7 in Schedule I of the CSA will have no significant impact upon entities whose interests must be considered under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601
The six-month extension of BZP, TFMPP, and 2C-T-7 in Schedule I of the CSA is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 of September 30, 1993. Drug scheduling matters are not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the provisions of E.O. 12866, section 3(d)(1). This action responds to an emergency situation posing an imminent hazard to the public safety and is essential to the criminal law enforcement function of the United States.
This action has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and criteria in Executive Order 13132, and it has been determined that this final rule does not have sufficient federalism implications to warrant the preparation of a Federalism Assessment.
