DEA list of chemicals

From Sciencemadness Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) maintains lists regarding the classification of illicit drugs (see DEA Schedules). It also maintains List I of chemicals and List II of chemicals, which contain chemicals that are used to manufacture the controlled substances/illicit drugs. The lists are designated within the Controlled Substances Act but can be modified by the U.S. Attorney General as illegal manufacturing practices change.

Although the list is controlled by the Attorney General, the list is considered a DEA list because the DEA publishes and enforces the list.

List I chemicals

These chemicals are designated as those that are used in the manufacture of the controlled substances and are important to the manufacture of the substances. The substance or substances that the List I chemicals may be used for manufacturing is in parentheses. [1][2][3]

List II chemicals

These chemicals are designated as those that are used in the manufacture of the controlled substances.[4][5]

Special Surveillance List

Chemicals

All listed chemicals[6] as specified in 21 CFR 1310.02 (a) or (b). This includes supplements which contain a listed chemical, regardless of their dosage form or packaging and regardless of whether the chemical mixture, drug product or dietary supplement is exempt from regulatory controls. For each chemical, its illicit manufacturing use is given in parentheses. Some Special Surveillance List chemicals do not have an exclusive manufacturing use for a specific illicit drug but rather have a broad range of uses in both legitimate and illicit manufacturing operations.
