  Program Description
  The purpose of DEA's Drug Diversion Control Program is to prevent, detect and investigate the diversion of controlled substances from legitimate channels while, at the same time, ensuring that there is an adequate uninterrupted supply of chemicals and pharmaceuticals to meet legitimate needs. DEA's Drug Diversion Control program was delegated the responsibility for control of diversion, distribution, manufacture, and abuse of legitimate pharmaceuticals. Pursuant to Public Law 107-395, diversion control registration fees were increased to recover the entire cost of the program, starting in 1994.
