Death, Taxes and DEA Inspections: Dealing with the Inevitable

November 22, 2011

In his recent article appearing in FDLI Update, Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C. Of Counsel, and former diversion investigator for the Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”), Larry K. Houck, explains the scope of DEA pre-registration and cyclic inspections as a step-by-step guide to actions and procedures registrants should take to prepare for and manage such inspections.  Citing, among other things, a recent notice (see our previous post here) stating that DEA is conducting more frequent scheduled investigations, as well as increasing the depth of review, Mr. Houck says that “there are certain actions and procedures that registrants can and should follow to prepare for and manage the inspection – before, during and afterwards.”
