Currently, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) registrants who have had their registrations revoked can reapply immediately for new licenses. Although these new licenses are usually rejected, they are sometimes approved. This allows entities that shouldn’t be allowed to manufacture, distribute, or dispense controlled substances to continue operating. Giving the DEA the power to debar entities would solve this problem.
The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) already rejects the vast majority of entities seeking new licenses after having their existing ones revoked. Given this, it’s unnecessary to give the agency debarment authority.
