The company plans to import Thebaine (9333) analytical reference standards for distribution to its customers. The company plans to import an intermediate form of Tapentadol (9780) to bulk manufacture Tapentadol for distribution to its customers. The company plans to import Phenylacetone (8501) and Poppy Straw Concentrate (9670) to manufacture other controlled substances.

The company has withdrawn its request to import the drug code Noroxymorphone (9668).

Comments and requests for hearings on applications to import narcotic raw material are not appropriate. 72 FR 3417 (2007).

DEA has considered the factors in 21 U.S.C. 823(a) and 952(a), and determined that the registration of Noramco, Inc., 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, at this time. DEA has investigated Noramco, Inc., 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 Sec. 1301.34, the above named company is granted registration as an importer of the basic classes of controlled substances listed.

Dated: May 24, 2013.
