Their goals are to detect, prevent, and investigate the diversion of controlled substances and List I regulated chemicals into the illicit market.

Understanding what steps are taken by DEA investigators, their methods of audit and computation is important for registrants to know. Generally, record-keeping violations are found through their computation chart used to determine any shortages (potential diversion) or overages (record-keeping errors) of controlled substances handled by the registrant.

Any violation of federal laws and DEA regulations may lead towards a civil action through the U.S. Attorney’s Office which may result in fines ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 for each violation. It can lead to an administrative action including the modification of the drug schedules or revocation of a DEA registration. In many cases, the civil fines may amount in millions of dollars for failure to maintain Due Diligence for improperly handling these products.
