Abstract: It is shown that a complete local ring is the completion of a unique factorization domain if and only if it is a field, a discrete valuation ring, or it has depth at least two and no element of its prime ring is a zerodivisor. It is also shown that the Normal Chain Conjecture is false and that there exist local noncatenary UFDs.
