Tablet Press and Encapsulating Machine Transactions

Tablet Press and Encapsulating Machine Transactions

04/17/2018, 1:30 PM - 2:15 PM

Technical Conference Stage 3, Booth 1376, Exhibit Hall


Effective in 2017, transactions involving tableting and encapsulating machines must be reported to the Import/Export Unit at the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) via a new form. There are also new data and time requirements for informing DEA of the import, export or domestic shipment. An incomplete report or a failure to provide a timely report could delay access to a firm's utilization of the machine. For example, a tablet press user who fails to meet the new advance time notification to DEA to import a tablet press could receive a civil fine, face delays in obtaining the machine from the port and pay a port storage fee.
