MONITORING OF TRADE



SECTION 1

Documentation and labelling

Article 3

▼M1

All imports, exports or intermediary activities involving scheduled substances, with the exception of substances listed in Category 4 of the Annex, shall be documented by the operator by way of customs and commercial documents, such as summary declarations, customs declarations, invoices, cargo manifests, transport and other shipping documents.

▼B

Those documents shall contain the following information:

(a) the name of the scheduled substance as stated in the Annex, or, in the case of a mixture or a natural product, its name and the name of any scheduled substance, as stated in the Annex, contained in the mixture or in the natural product, followed by the term ‘DRUG PRECURSORS’;

(b) the quantity and weight of the scheduled substance and, in the case of a mixture or a natural product, the quantity, weight, and, if available, the percentage of any scheduled substance contained therein; and

Article 4

The documentation referred to in Article 3 shall be kept by the operators for a period of three years from the end of the calendar year in which the operation took place. The documentation shall be organised in such a way, electronically or in paper form, that it is readily available for inspection by the competent authorities upon request. The documentation may be provided via image medium or other data medium, provided that the data, when made readable, match the documentation in appearance and content, are available at all times, can be made readable without delay and can be analysed by automated means.

▼M1

Article 5

Operators shall ensure that labels are affixed on any packaging containing scheduled substances, except substances listed in Category 4 of the Annex, indicating their name as stated in the Annex, or, in the case of a mixture or a natural product, its name and the name of any scheduled substance, except substances listed in Category 4 of the Annex, as stated in the Annex, contained in the mixture or in the natural product. Operators may, in addition, affix their customary labels.

▼B



SECTION 2

Licensing and registration of operators

Article 6

▼M1

1.  Unless otherwise provided, operators established in the Union, other than customs agents and transporters when acting solely in that capacity, engaged in import, export or intermediary activities involving scheduled substances listed in Category 1 of the Annex, shall hold a licence. The competent authority of the Member State in which the operator is established shall issue the licence.

In considering whether to grant a licence, the competent authority shall take into account the competence and integrity of the applicant, in particular the absence of any serious infringement or repeated infringements of legislation in the field of drug precursors and the absence of a record of any serious criminal offence.

The Commission shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts in accordance with Article 30b to set out the conditions for granting licences and for determining cases where a licence is not required.

▼B

2.  The licence may be suspended or revoked by the competent authorities whenever the conditions under which the licence was issued are no longer fulfilled or where there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that there is a risk of diversion of scheduled substances.

▼M1

3.  The Commission shall establish a model for licences by means of implementing acts. Those implementing acts shall be adopted in accordance with the examination procedure referred to in Article 30(2).

▼M1

Article 7

1.  Unless otherwise provided, operators established in the Union, other than customs agents and transporters when acting solely in that capacity, engaged in import, export or intermediary activities involving scheduled substances listed in Category 2 of the Annex, or in the export of scheduled substances listed in Category 3 of the Annex, shall hold a registration. The competent authority in the Member State in which the operator is established shall issue the registration.

In considering whether to grant a registration, the competent authority shall take into account the competence and integrity of the applicant, in particular the absence of any serious infringement or repeated infringements of legislation in the field of drug precursors and the absence of a record of any serious criminal offence.

The Commission shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts in accordance with Article 30b to set out the conditions for granting registrations and for determining cases where a registration is not required.

2.  The competent authority may suspend or revoke the registration where the conditions under which the registration was issued are no longer fulfilled or where there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that there is a risk of diversion of scheduled substances.

Article 8

1.  When the scheduled substances are entered into the customs territory of the Union for unloading or transhipment, for temporary storage, for their storage in a free zone of control type I or a free warehouse, or for their placing under the external Union transit procedure, the licit purposes must be demonstrated by the operator, upon request by the competent authorities.

2.  The Commission shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts in accordance with Article 30b to establish the criteria to determine how the licit purposes of the transaction may be demonstrated, in order to ensure that all movements of scheduled substances within the customs territory of the Union can be monitored by the competent authorities and the risk of diversion be minimised.

▼B



SECTION 3

Provision of information

▼M1

Article 9

1.  Operators established in the Union shall notify the competent authorities immediately of any circumstances, such as unusual orders and transactions involving scheduled substances, which suggest that such substances intended for import, export or intermediary activities might be diverted for the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances.

To that end, operators shall provide any available information, such as:

(a) the name of the scheduled substance;

(b) the quantity and weight of the scheduled substance;

(c) the names and addresses of the exporter, the importer, the ultimate consignee and, where applicable, the person involved in the intermediary activities.

That information shall only be collected for the purposes of preventing the diversion of scheduled substances.

2.  Operators shall provide the competent authorities with information in summary form about their export, import or intermediary activities.

The Commission shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts in accordance with Article 30b to determine the information that is required by the competent authorities in order to allow them to monitor those activities.

The Commission shall specify by means of implementing acts the procedural rules on the provision of such information, including, where appropriate, in electronic form to the European database on drug precursors established under Regulation (EC) No 273/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council ( 5 ) (‘the European database’). Those implementing acts shall be adopted in accordance with the examination procedure referred to in Article 30(2).

▼B

Article 10

1.  In order to facilitate cooperation between the competent authorities of the Member States, operators established in the ►M1  Union ◄ and the chemical industry, in particular as regards non-scheduled substances, the Commission shall, in consultation with the Member States, draw up and update guidelines.

2.  These guidelines shall provide, in particular:

(a) information on how to identify and notify suspect transactions;

(b) a regularly updated list of non-scheduled substances to enable the industry to monitor on a voluntary basis the trade in such substances.

3.  The competent authorities shall ensure that the guidelines are regularly disseminated in accordance with the objectives of these guidelines.

▼M1

4.  In order to respond rapidly to new diversion trends, the competent authorities of the Member States and the Commission may propose to add a non-scheduled substance to the list referred to in paragraph 2(b) in order to temporarily monitor its trade. Detailed arrangements and criteria for the inclusion or deletion from that list shall be specified in the guidelines referred to in paragraph 1.

5.  If voluntary monitoring by the industry is considered insufficient to prevent the use of a non-scheduled substance for the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances, the Commission may add the non-scheduled substance to the Annex by means of delegated acts in accordance with Article 30b.

▼B



SECTION 4

Pre-export notification

Article 11

▼M1

1.  All exports of scheduled substances listed in Categories 1 and 4 of the Annex and exports of scheduled substances listed in Categories 2 and 3 of the Annex to certain countries of destination shall be preceded by a pre-export notification sent from the competent authorities in the Union to the competent authorities of the country of destination, in accordance with Article 12(10) of the United Nations Convention. The Commission shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts in accordance with Article 30b of this Regulation to determine the lists of the countries of destination for export of scheduled substances listed in Categories 2 and 3 of the Annex in order to minimise the risk of diversion of scheduled substances.

▼B

The country of destination shall be allowed a period of 15 working days to reply, at the end of which the export operation may be authorised by the competent authorities of the Member State of export, if no advice from the competent authorities of the country of destination is received indicating that this export operation might be intended for the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances.

2.  In the case of the scheduled substances to be notified in accordance with paragraph 1, the competent authorities of the Member State concerned shall, prior to the export of such substances, supply the information specified in Article 13(1) to the competent authorities of the country of destination.

The authority supplying such information shall require the authority in the third country receiving the information to keep confidential any trade, business, commercial or professional secret or any trade process referred to therein.

▼M1

3.  Simplified pre-export notification procedures may be applied by the competent authorities where they are satisfied that this will not result in any risk of diversion of scheduled substances. The Commission shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts in accordance with Article 30b to determine such procedures and to establish the common criteria to be applied by the competent authorities.

▼B



SECTION 5
