The company plans to import the listed controlled substances for bulk manufacture into Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) for distribution to its customers. In reference to drug code 7360 (marihuana), the company plans to import synthetic cannabinol. No other activity for this drug is authorized for this registration. Placement of these codes onto the company's registration does not translate into automatic approval of subsequent permit applications to import controlled substances.

Approval of permit applications will occur only when the registrant's business activity is consistent with what is authorized under 21 U.S.C. 952(a)(2).

Authorization will not extend the import of FDA approved or non-approved finished forms for commercial sale.

Dated: February 27, 2020.
