OIG Report Criticizes DEA Timeliness Regarding Registrant Actions
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) examined the adjudicative process followed by the DEA between 2008 and 2012 and detailed its findings in a report issued by OIG in May 2014. Not surprisingly, the OIG found "that the time it took the DEA to reach a final adjudication of registrant actions was very lengthy." The OIG further acknowledged that this lengthy delay adversely impacts the registrant. "For registrants, inappropriate delays can seriously impact their livelihood, career, and ability to conduct business."
