Office of Diversion Control regulates the export of controlled substances and precursor chemicals. All controlled substances and precursor chemicals are divided into 5 categories, called schedules. Regardless of category, permit or declaration are required upon export or import. The only time when neither permit, nor declaration are required, is when the substance is either exempt from the list or is not a part of the list.
Only those persons registered with and authorized by DEA to import or export controlled substances may utilize/submit declarations and applications for permits.
