In accordance with 21 CFR 1301.34(a), this is notice that on July 6, 2017, Noramco, Inc., 1550 Olympic Drive, Athens, Georgia 30601 applied to be registered as an importer of the following basic controlled substances:

The company plans to import an intermediate form of tapentadol (9780) to bulk manufacture tapentadol (9780) for distribution to its customers.
