Up, up and but not away: DEA raises registration fees

FDA Law Blog

The DEA registration fee will increase from $731 for a 3-year registration to $888 effective on October 1, 2020. An interesting aspect of a federal or state administrative agency seeking appropriations or raising fees is its justification for doing so and the light it sheds on the priorities for fulfilling its mission. The Drug Enforcement Administration’s (“DEA’s”) recent increase of initial registration and renewal fees, through its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, (Registration and Reregistration Fees for Controlled Substance and List I Chemical Registrants, 85 Fed. Reg. 14,810 (Mar. 16, 2020)) and Final Rule, (Registration and Reregistration Fees for Controlled Substance and List I Chemical Registrants, 85 Fed. Reg. 44,710 (July 24, 2020)) is no exception. In addition to raising fees, DEA also codifies the conditions under which it will now refund registration fees.

What to expect when a coronavirus vaccine is approved in the U.S.

NY News1

Britain has become one of the first countries in the world to approve the Pfizer and BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, paving the way for mass vaccination. Meanwhile in the U.S., the FDA is still vetting that vaccine and another one from Moderna. A decision to approve either one is expected later this month. When a vaccine is finally available, a CDC committee says health care workers and nursing home residents should get it first.
