Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Justice Department’s Drug Enforcement Administration has issued a final order establishing the initial 2016 aggregate production quotas for controlled substances in schedules I and II of the Controlled Substances Act as well as an assessment of annual needs for the List I chemicals ephedrine, pseudoephedrine and phenylpropanolamine. These amounts represent those quantities of the covered substances to be manufactured in the U.S. to provide for the estimated medical, scientific, research and industrial needs of the U.S., lawful export requirements, and the establishment and maintenance of reserve stocks. These quotas include imports of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine and phenylpropanolamine but do not include imports of controlled substances for use in industrial processes.
