Draft Delegated Regulation – Scheduling of ANPP and NPP in the EU Drug Precursor Legislation

Drug precursors are chemicals which may be used for the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances. Regulation (EC) No 273/2004 lays down measures for monitoring trade in drug precursors within the EU, while Regulation (EC) No 111/2005 governs trade in drug precursors between the EU and third countries. Both Regulations jointly implement the obligations stemming from Article 12 of the Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances of 1988 (the 1988 UN Convention) in the EU. By its decisions 60/12 and 60/13, taken at its sixtieth session on 16 March 2017, the Commission on Narcotic Drugs of the United Nations decided to include, respectively, 4-anilino-N-phenethylpiperidine (ANPP) and N-phenethyl-4-piperidone (NPP) in Table I of the 1988 UN Convention. The Commission is asking for feedback on the Draft delegated regulation on the scheduling of these substances in the EU Drug Precursor legislation.
