Importer of Controlled Substances; Notice of Registration Mallinckrodt LLC

By Notice dated January 23, 2012, and published in the Federal Register on January 31, 2012, 77 FR 4831, Mallinckrodt LLC, 3600 North Second Street, St. Louis, Missouri 63147, made application by renewal to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to be registered as an importer of the following basic classes of controlled substances:

Drug Schedule
Phenylacetone (8501) II
Coca Leaves (9040) II
Opium, raw (9600) II
Poppy Straw Concentrate (9670) II

The company plans to import the listed controlled substances to manufacture bulk controlled substances for distribution to its customers, and for research and analytical standards.

The company has withdrawn its application for registration to import the following drug codes: Methylphenidate (1724), Oxycodone (9143), Hydromorphone (9150), Hydrocodone (9193), Morphine (9300), and Fentanyl (9801).

Comments and requests for hearings on applications to import narcotic raw material are not appropriate, 72 FR 3417 (2007). Regarding all other basic classes of controlled substances, no comments or objections have been received. DEA has considered the factors in 21 U.S.C. 823(a) and 952(a), and determined that the registration of Mallinckrodt LLC, to import the basic classes of controlled substances is consistent with the public interest, and with United States obligations under international treaties, conventions, or protocols in effect on May 1, 1971. DEA has investigated Mallinckrodt LLC to ensure that the company's registration is consistent with the public interest. The investigation has included inspection and testing of the company's physical security systems, verification of the company's compliance with state and local laws, and a review of the company's background and history. Therefore, pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 952(a) and 958(a), and in accordance with 21 CFR 1301.34, the above named company is granted registration as an importer of the basic classes of controlled substances listed.

Dated: March 23, 2012.
