NOTE From: Horizontal Working Party on Drugs

No. prev. doc.: 14409/05 CORDROGUE 73

Subject: Follow-up to Europol-EMCDDA joint report on a new psychoactive substance; MCPP

1. In accordance with Article 5 of Council decision 2005/387/JHA on information exchange, risk assessment and control of new psychoactive substances, Europol/EMCDDA submitted in November 2005 a joint report on a new psychoactive substance 1-(3-chlorophenyl) piperazine (mCPP) (cf. doc. 14409/05 CORDROGUE 73).

2. The Horizontal Working Party examined this report at its meetings of 7 November 2005 and 8 December 2005. At the last meeting the Working Party agreed on the base of a room document of the Commission that no risk assessment should be carried out. However given the concern mCPP is causing and as provided for by the second indent of article 7.3 of before mentioned Council Decision the scope for further action, such as a scientific analysis, will be examined by the Commission in close cooperation with EMCDDA and EMEA.

3. The Commission will inform the Council on the results of this exam.
