paragraph:

of any registrant under this title to manufacture, distribute, or 
dispense controlled substances or list I chemicals terminates if and 
when such registrant--
        ``(i) dies;

        ``(iii) discontinues business or professional practice; or
        ``(iv) surrenders such registration.

desiring to discontinue business or professional practice altogether or 
with respect to controlled substances and list I chemicals (without 
assigning or transferring such business or professional practice to 
another entity), such registrant shall return to the Attorney General 
for cancellation--
        ``(i) the registrant's certificate of registration;
        ``(ii) any unexecuted order forms in the registrant's
