The Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA) has released the following letter regarding the DEA's Interim Final Rule.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) today published an Interim Final Rule that makes significant changes to the requirements for importing and exporting List I and List II chemicals. Effective May 9, 2007, all importers previously granted regulator importer status will no longer hold that status. Every import of a List I or List II chemical must be reported to DEA not later than 15 days prior to the proposed importation. These changes are being made under the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005. If you are an importer or exporter of List I or List II chemicals please review the notice.
