COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1277/2005

of 27 July 2005

laying down implementing rules for Regulation (EC) No 273/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council on drug precursors and for Council Regulation (EC) No 111/2005 laying down rules for the monitoring of trade between the Community and third countries in drug precursors

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 273/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 February 2004 on drug precursors (1), and in particular Article 14(a) and (f) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 111/2005 of 22 December 2004 laying down rules for the monitoring of trade between the Community and third countries in drug precursors (2), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 6(1), Articles 7(2), 8(2) and 9(2), Article 11(1) and (3), the third subparagraph of Article 12(1) and Articles 19 and 28 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Council 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 (3) which was implemented by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3769/92 of 21 December 1992 implementing and amending Council Regulation (EEC) No 3677/90 laying down measures to be taken to discourage the diversion of certain substances to the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances (4) has been replaced by Regulation (EC) No 111/2005. It is necessary to bring the implementing measures contained in Regulation (EEC) No 3769/92 in line with the new set of rules provided for in Regulation (EC) No 111/2005. Regulation (EEC) No 3769/92 should therefore be repealed.

(2)

Regulation (EC) No 273/2004 on drug precursors, which replaces Council Directive 92/109/EEC (5), harmonises the provisions concerning the placing on the market of certain substances used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances within the Community. In order to enhance the smooth operation of the internal market, for the trade in drug precursors, the provisions for the application for a licence, the granting or refusal of the granting of a licence, its suspension or revocation, should be harmonised at Community level.

(3)

It is important to avoid the unauthorised removal of Category 1 substances, and therefore the business premises where these substances are stored or used should be secured against the unauthorised removal.

(4)

The types of operators engaged in intra-Community trade who may benefit from special licences and special registrations should be further determined. The cases where operators engaged in trade between the Community and third countries may be exempted from the licensing and registration requirement should be determined.

(5)

The provisions governing the licence conditions and the notification obligations of operators engaged in intra-Community trade and trade between the Community and third countries should to the extent possible be identical.

(6)

Provisions should be set up allowing to verify the licit purposes of all drug precursor consignments entering the Community customs territory, including, in particular, transit and transhipment consignments and sensitive areas such as Community free zones.

(7)

Specific import authorisation procedures are necessary to monitor individual import consignments of Category 1 substances in order to prevent diversion at an early stage and in particular to address the growing problem of amphetamine-type stimulants.

(8)

Detailed rules concerning pre-export notification should allow it to adapt the information transfer and the necessary type of response to the sensitivity of the export consignment. In order to fully exploit the pre-export notification and export authorisation system, efforts should in principle target high risk consignments. Detailed rules on the simplified use of pre-export notifications and the granting of export authorisations by simplified procedure should allow the easening of the administrative burden for mass chemicals with common licit uses.

(9)

In view of an efficient monitoring of trade Member States should enable the competent authorities to perform their tasks efficiently and to exchange information between themselves.

(10)

To improve the coordination of the monitoring of drug precursors it is appropriate that the Member States provide the Commission regularly with information on the prevention of the diversion of drug precursors.

(11)

This Regulation should apply from the same date as Regulation (EC) No 273/2004 and Regulation (EC) No 111/2005.

(12)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the drug precursors committee,
