ACI is excited to return to Washington, D.C. with our one-of-a-kind, interactive forum where stakeholders can gather with peers, discuss challenges, and walk away with tailored strategies for overcoming these challenges.

As our nation continues with attempts to combat the opioid overdose crisis, the regulations and requirements for stakeholders along the entire supply chain continue to evolve at a rapid pace. Recently the DOJ exercised its authority to reduce opioid production and DEA modified its opioid distribution quota rules in an attempt to minimize diversion. Further, state, city, and county litigations continue to escalate, with no end in sight.


Hear from the Experts

Our faculty consisting of current and former DEA officials, DOJ representatives, in-house industry counsel, and outside counsel, will provide an up-to-date analysis of the current regulations, best practices for staying compliant, avoiding DEA investigations, and knowing how to respond when DEA comes knocking at your door.


Sample Topics Include:

  • Keeping up with DEA’s evolving suspicious order monitoring and quota requirements
  • DEA inspections and maintaining a compliant facility
  • Tracking state prescription drug monitoring programs
  • County, city, and state opioid enforcement and litigation update

Agenda and speakers list will be available soon. Stay up-to-date by signing up for email updates.
