Drugs Precursors

European Union legislation seeks to prevent the illicit use of drug precursors (EC No. 273/2004). The Regulations are concerned with control and monitoring of certain substances frequently used for the illicit manufacture of narcotic or psychotropic substances with a view to preventing their diversion.
