SUMMARY: This document contains corrections to the proposed rule (DEA- 137P) which was published Wednesday, September 16, 1998, (63 FR 49506). The proposed rule related to the implementation of those portions of the Domestic Chemical Diversion Control Act of 1993 [Pub.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Frank O. Sapienza, Chief, Drug and Chemical Evaluation Section, Office of Diversion Control, Drug Enforcement Administration, Washington, DC 20537, Telephone (202) 307-7183.



The proposed regulations that are subject to this correction make amendments to parts 1300 and 1310 of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations to exempt from regulation, under the Controlled Substances Act, certain chemical mixtures that contain listed chemicals.
