Below is a brief summary and highlights of some of the countries we monitor and encode in Controlled Substances Squared to allow you to easily and automatically check if your chemicals are regulated or controlled - even novel and propriatory chemicals
Yellow List, 61st Edition, has been published. There are two new substances included in this edition – Brorphine and Metonitazene. These have been in CS2 under the Yellow list since March 2022 when the 65th Session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs indicated their scheduling.
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), its salts and PFOA-related compounds have been added to Annex III of the Rotterdam Convention.
Decabromodiphenyl ether has been added to Annex III of the Rotterdam Convention.
Inclusion in Table I and Table IV of 15 new psychoactive substances are added as controlled substances.
Inclusion in Table I of the substance tramadol.
Final rule on placement of Ganaxolone in Schedule V
Specific Listing for 1-boc-4-AP, a currently Controlled List I Chemical. Although 1-boc-4-AP was not previously specifically listed as a list I chemical of the Controlled Substances Act with its own unique Chemical Control Number, it has been regulated as a list I chemical in the United States since May 15, 2020, as a carbamate of N-phenylpiperidin-4-amine, a list I chemical. Therefore, the DEA is simply amending the list I chemicals list in its regulations to include a separate listing for 1-boc-4-AP, even though already controlled.
