Proposal for a REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on drug precursors

(presented by the Commission)

EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM

1. Introduction

An effective control of the chemicals used in the illegal production of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances has proved to be one of the most efficient weapons against drug trafficking. As is very often said: there are no drugs without precursors. However, in the majority of cases, precursors are chemical products that also have legal and legitimate uses. Legitimate trade of these substances should therefore be recognised and protected.

In this context, the European Community has adopted two legal instruments laying down the measures to be taken to discourage the diversion of certain substances to the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances. Council Regulation (EEC) No 3677/90 [1] aims at surveillance of the trade in precursors between the Member States and third countries while Directive 92/109/EEC [2] does the same regarding the internal market.

[1] OJ L 357, 20.12.1990, p. 1, as last amended by Council Regulation (EC) No 1116/2001 (OJ L 153, 8.6.2001, p. 4).

[2] OJ L 370, 19.12.1992, p. 76.

In January 1998 the Commission adopted a proposal for the amendment [3] of Directive 92/109/EEC, hereinafter referred to as "the Directive". In its first reading, Parliament supported the Commission initiative and proposed five amendments [4]. The Commission reacted to the Parliament's opinion (first reading) by adopting an amended proposal [5]. The Council has not yet taken any decision on the proposal.

[5] Document COM(1999)202 final (OJ C 162, 9.6.1999, p. 9).

2. Objectives of the Commission proposal

Article 12 of the 1988 United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (Vienna Convention) provides for control measures for trade in twenty-three substances which, while also having numerous licit uses, are frequently diverted for use in the clandestine manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances. In accordance with the Convention, the manufacture and placing on the Community market of such substances are subject to strict surveillance, in particular pursuant to Directive 92/109/EEC.

By transforming the current Directive into a Regulation the Commission aims mainly at simplifying the legislation and thus making it more user-friendly. This becomes especially important in the context of the on-going process of enlargement of the European Union where each modification of the Directive and its annexes would have triggered national implementation measures in some twenty-five Member States.

Furthermore, it should be stressed that the above-mentioned Regulation (EEC) No 3677/90 has the same basic objectives as the Directive. Whereas the Regulation concerns the trade of substances between the European Community and third countries, the Directive deals with drug precursors in the Internal Market. This results in an uneven application of the two instruments because a modification of the Regulation's annexes will be applicable simultaneously in all Member States within a few days from publication [6], while the corresponding modification of the Directive's annexes is subject to a transposition period that most Member States are unable to meet [7]. In practice, delays of up to forty-two months have occurred in the past before the modifying directives were fully transposed into national law. The result is that the controls on newly identified drug precursors in the Internal Market lacked efficiency. A continuation of this situation cannot be justified and a uniform application of Community law in this area is needed to avoid any diversion of drug precursors into the production of illegal drugs.

[6] See Commission Regulation (EC) No 260/2001 (OJ L 39, 9.2.2001, p. 11) which entered into force nineteen days after the publication in the Official Journal, on 1 March 2001.

[7] See Commission Directive 2001/8/EC (OJ L 39, 9.2.2001, p. 31) whose transposition has not yet been completed in all Member States.

The Commission has therefore decided to withdraw the proposal for an amendment of Directive 92/109/EEC. The Regulation now proposed would better ensure that the provisions are directly applied by economic operators and that harmonised measures are implemented in all Member States at the same time. It would permit the legitimate use of the affected chemical substances to be monitored and would avoid their diversion to the manufacture of illegal drugs. It will also ensure that the implementation of this new instrument is as rapid as that of Regulation 3677/90.

3. Content of the Commission proposal

The aim of the new Regulation is to establish harmonised measures of control and monitoring of certain chemical substances frequently used in the manufacture of illegal narcotic drugs. The new Regulation will prevent barriers to the free trade of these substances between Member States. In order to achieve this aim, the proposed Regulation contains rules on licensing, customer declarations, labelling and a monitoring procedure.

In addition, the Commission proposes that the new Regulation should take account of the changeable nature of the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and to align it with the already published amendments to Regulation (EEC) No 3677/90.

A further improvement to the current situation will be to oblige the Member States to distribute to economic operators information on how to recognise and notify suspect transactions so that economic operators inform the competent authorities of suspect transactions involving substances not currently mentioned in the Directive but which are nevertheless frequently used to manufacture synthetic drugs. This co-operative approach has already been tried and tested in a number of Member States (France, Germany, Austria, United Kingdom, The Netherlands). The Commission, assisted by the Committee referred to in Article 15 of the new Regulation, will be responsible for drawing up and constantly updating the lists of products which are to be subject to such surveillance. These lists will be distributed to economic operators by the Member States.

The Commission takes this opportunity to define more clearly what it means by a "scheduled substance", since the measures applicable to Sassafras Oil are currently interpreted in different ways in the Community. In some Member States it is regarded as a mixture containing Safrole, and is therefore controlled, while other Member States regard it as a natural product not subject to controls. Inserting a reference to natural products in the definition of "scheduled substance" resolves this discrepancy and therefore allows controls to be applied to Sassafras Oil; only natural products from which scheduled substances can be easily extracted are covered by the definition.

The Commission also proposes to define "non-scheduled substances" in conformity with Article 12(12)b of the United Nations Convention.

As a final point, the Commission considers this a good opportunity to take into account the revision of the classification for Potassium Permanganate. The Committee referred to in Article 15 of the new Regulation, has considered that this chemical gives rise to particular concern. The Committee has recommended the classification of Potassium Permanganate in category 2 of Annex I. Thresholds have been set up for Potassium Permanganate as well as for Acetic Anhydride to ensure that internal trade of these products will not be negatively affected.

Proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on drug precursors

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 95 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission [8],

[8] OJ C [...], [...], p.[...].

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee [9],

[9] OJ C [...], [...], p.[...].

Acting in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 251 of the Treaty [10],

[10] OJ C [...], [...], p.[...].

Whereas:

(1) The United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances, adopted in Vienna on 19 December 1988, hereinafter referred to as the "United Nations Convention", was approved by the Community, with respect to matters within its competence, by Council Decision 90/611/EEC of 22 October 1990 [11].

[11] OJ L 326, 24.11.1990, p. 56, Council Decision 90/611/EEC of 22 October 1990 concerning the conclusion, on behalf of the European Economic Community, of the United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances.

(2) The requirements of Article 12 of the United Nations Convention, in respect of trade in precursors, (i.e. substances frequently used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances), are implemented as far as trade between the Community and third countries is concerned by Regulation (EEC) No 3677/90 of 13 December 1990 laying down measures to be taken to discourage the diversion of certain substances to the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances [12].

[12] OJ L 357, 20.12.1990, p. 1, as last amended by Council Regulation (EC) No 1116/2001 (OJ L 153, 8.6.2001, p. 4).

(3) Article 12 of the United Nations Convention envisages adoption of appropriate measures to monitor manufacture and distribution of precursors. This requires the adoption of measures relating to the trade of precursors among Member States. Such measures were introduced by Council Directive 92/109/EEC of 14 December 1992 on the manufacture and placing on the market of certain substances used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances. To better ensure that harmonised rules are applied at the same time in all Member States a Regulation is deemed to be more adequate than the current Directive.

(4) By decisions taken at its thirty-fifth session, 1992, the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs included additional substances in the tables of the Annex to the Convention. Corresponding provisions should be laid down in this Regulation in order to detect possible cases of illicit diversion of drugs in the Community and to ensure that common monitoring rules are applied in the Community market .

(5) The provisions of Article 12 of the United Nations Convention are based on a system of monitoring trade in the substances in question. Most trade in these substances is entirely lawful. The documentation of consignments and labelling of these substances must be sufficiently explicit. It is furthermore important, whilst providing competent authorities with the necessary means of action, to develop within the spirit of the United Nations Convention mechanisms based on close co-operation with the operators concerned and on the development of intelligence gathering.

(6) The measures applicable to Sassafras Oil are currently interpreted in different ways in the Community, since it is regarded as a mixture containing Safrole and is therefore controlled in some Member States, while other Member States regard it as a natural product not subject to controls. Inserting a reference to natural products in the definition of "scheduled substance" resolves this discrepancy and therefore allows controls to be applied to Sassafras Oil; only natural products from which scheduled substances can be easily extracted are covered by the definition.

(7) Substances commonly used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances should be listed in an Annex.

(8) It should be ensured that the manufacture or use of certain scheduled substances listed in the Annex is subject to possession of a licence. The supply of such substances should in addition be permitted only where the persons to whom they are to be supplied are either holders of a license or have signed a customer declaration. The detailed rules concerning the customer declaration should be laid down in Annex III.

(9) Measures should be adopted to encourage operators to notify suspicious transactions involving substances listed in Annex I to the competent authorities.

(10) Measures should be adopted in order to guarantee better control of intra-community trade of scheduled substances listed in Annex I.

(11) All transactions leading to the placing on the market of scheduled substances in categories 1 and 2 of Annex I should be properly documented. Operators shall notify the Competent Authorities of any suspect transactions involving the substances listed in Annex I. However, exemptions should apply to transactions concerning substances in category 2 of Annex I where the quantities involved do not exceed those indicated in Annex II.

(12) A significant number of other substances, many of them traded legally in large quantities, have been identified as precursors to the illicit manufacture of synthetic drugs. To subject these substances to the same strict controls as those listed in the Annex would present an unnecessary obstacle to trade involving licences to operate and documentation of transactions. Therefore, a more flexible mechanism at Community level should be established whereby the competent authorities in the Member States are notified of such transactions.

(13) The introduction of a cooperation procedure is provided for in the European Union Action Plan against drugs approved by the European Council of Santa-Maria-da-Feira on 19 and 20 June 2000. In order to support co-operation between the Member State administrations and the chemicals industry, in particularly with regard to substances which, though not referred to in this regulation, may be used in the illicit manufacture of synthetic drugs, guidelines should be drawn up aimed at helping this industry.

(14) The measures necessary for the implementation of this Regulation should be adopted in accordance with Council Decision 1999/468/EC of 28 June 1999 laying down the procedures for the exercise of implementing powers conferred on the Commission [13].

[13] OJ L 184, 17.7.1999, p. 23.

(15) Since the objectives of the proposed action, the harmonised monitoring of the trade in drug precursors and the avoidance of its diversion to the illegal production of narcotic drugs, cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States, and can therefore, by reason of its international and changeable nature, be better achieved at Community level, the Community may adopt measures, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity as set out in Article 5 of the Treaty. In accordance with the principle of proportionality, as set out in that Article, this Regulation does not go beyond what is necessary in order to achieve those objectives.

(16) Council Directive 92/109/EEC of 14 December 1992 [14], Commission Directives 93/46/EEC of 22 June 1993 [15] and 2001/8/EC of 8 February 2001 [16], and Commission Regulations (EC) No 1485/96 of 26 July 1996 [17] and (EC) No 1533/2000 of 13 July 2000 [18] should be repealed,

[14] OJ L 370, 19.12.1992, p. 76, Council Directive 92/109/EEC of 14 December 1992 on the manufacture and the placing on the market of certain substances used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances.

[15] OJ L 159, 1.7.1993, p. 134, Directive 93/46/EEC of 22 June 1993 replacing and modifying the Annexes to Council Directive 92/109/EEC on the manufacture and placing on the market of certain substances used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances.

[17] OJ L 188, 27.7.1996, p. 28, Regulation (EC) No 1485/96 of 26 July 1996 laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Directive 92/109/EEC, as regards customer declarations of specific use relating to certain substances used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances.

[18] OJ L 175, 14.7.2000, p. 75, Commission Regulation (EC) No 1533/2000 of 13 July 2000 amending Regulation (EC) No 1485/96 laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Directive 92/109/EEC, as regards customer declarations of specific use relating to certain substances used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances.
