Review for scheduling of the amphetamine-like drugs

The Economic and Social Council,

Recalling Commission on Narcotic Drugs resolution 4(XXX) of 16 February 1983,

Noting with concern the serious health and social problems posed by amphetamine-like drugs in some countries,

Noting also with concern the growing traffic in and abuse of amphetamine-like drugs in some countries not currently subject to international control,

Aware that many of those substances have limited or no recognized therapeutic use,

Recognizing that the Secretary-General has recently obtained information from many States with respect to those substances, in response to his request,

1. Urges the World Health Organization to select any of those amphetamine-like drugs for which data have been collected and which represent the most serious social and health consequences, to review those substances immediately, in accordance with Commission on Narcotic Drugs resolution 2(S-VII) of 8 February 1982 and consistent with the principles governing the new review procedures of the World Health Organization, and to make its findings available to the Commission at its thirty-first session;

2. Requests the Secretary-General to analyse the information recently obtained by him, in accordance with all relevant provisions of Commission on Narcotic Drugs resolution 2(S-VII), to prepare a report on the basis of that analysis, and to transmit that report, together with the report of the World Health Organization, to parties to the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961, and the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances and to members of the Commission not later than two months prior to the beginning of the thirty-first session of the Commission.
