NJ Rev Stat § 24:21-11 (2014) What's This?

24:21-11 Registration.

11. Registration. a. The division shall not register an applicant to manufacture or distribute controlled dangerous substances included in Schedules I through IV of article 2 of P.L.1970, c.226 (C.24:21-3 et seq.), as amended and supplemented, unless it determines that the issuance of such registration is consistent with the public interest. In determining the public interest, the following factors shall be considered:

(1)Maintenance of effective controls against diversion of particular controlled dangerous substances into other than legitimate medical, scientific, or industrial channels;

(2)Compliance with applicable State and local laws;

(3)Any convictions of the applicant under any federal and State laws relating to any controlled dangerous substance;

(4)Past experience in the manufacture of controlled dangerous substances, and the existence in the applicant's establishment of effective controls against diversion;

(5)Furnishing by the applicant false or fraudulent material in any application filed under this act;

(6)Suspension or revocation of the applicant's federal registration to manufacture, distribute, or dispense controlled dangerous substances as authorized by federal law; and

(7)Such other factors as may be relevant to and consistent with the public health and safety.

b.Registration granted under subsection a. of this section shall not entitle a registrant to manufacture and distribute controlled dangerous substances in Schedule I or II other than those specified in the registration.

c.Practitioners shall be registered to dispense substances in Schedules II through IV if they are authorized to dispense or conduct research under the law of this State. The director need not require separate registration under this article for practitioners engaging in research with nonnarcotic controlled dangerous substances in Schedules II through IV where the registrant is already registered under this article in another capacity. Practitioners registered under federal law to conduct research in Schedule I substances are permitted to conduct research in Schedule I substances within this State upon furnishing the director evidence of that federal registration.

d.Compliance by manufacturers and distributors with the provisions of the federal law respecting registration (excluding fees) entitles them to be registered under P.L.1970, c.226 (C.24:21-1 et seq.), as amended and supplemented.

e.The division shall initially permit persons to register who own or operate any establishment engaged in the manufacture, distribution or dispensing of any controlled dangerous substances prior to the effective date of P.L.1970, c.226, as amended and supplemented, and who are registered or licensed by the State.

f. An incorporated humane society or a licensed animal control facility may designate an officer, a member of its board of trustees, the owner, the operator or the manager as its duly authorized agent. The division shall, consistent with the public interest, register such duly authorized agent for the limited purpose of buying, possessing, and dispensing to registered and certified personnel sodium pentobarbital to euthanize injured, sick, homeless and unwanted domestic pets or domestic or wild animals. The duly authorized agent shall file, on a quarterly basis, a report of any purchase, possession and use of sodium pentobarbital, which report shall be certified by the humane society or animal control facility as to its accuracy and validity. This report shall be in addition to any other recordkeeping and reporting requirements of State and federal law and regulation.

The division shall adopt rules and regulations providing for the registration and certification of any individual who, under the direction of the duly authorized and registered agent of an incorporated humane society or licensed animal control facility, uses sodium pentobarbital to euthanize injured, sick, homeless and unwanted domestic pets or domestic or wild animals. The division may also adopt such other rules and regulations as shall provide for the safe and efficient use of sodium pentobarbital by animal control facilities and humane societies. Nothing herein shall be deemed to waive any other requirement imposed on animal control facilities and humane societies by State and federal law and regulation.

L.1970, c.226, s.11; amended 1971, c.3, s.6; 1979, c.204; 2007, c.244, s.10.
