Current NPS Threats Vol.6

As a new feature of the UNODC Early Warning Advisory (EWA) on new psychoactive substances (NPS), the EWA Tox-Portal is an innovative tool to collect, analyse and share data on toxicology and harm related to the use of NPS at a global level. In collaboration with The International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT) and other partners, the Tox-Portal is designed to generate timely information on the harms and adverse health consequences associated with the use of NPS, based on case reports of intoxications, including fatalities. Information from the Tox-Portal will contribute to identifying the most harmful NPS as an important step towards prioritizing NPS for international review in the framework of the International Drug Control Conventions. Current NPS Threats reports are published biannually and combine data from drug seizures as well as drug detections in biological fluid casework allowing an overview of the NPS landscape.
