This is the third annual report on the Home Office Forensic Early Warning System (FEWS). FEWS was set up to identify New Psychoactive Substance (NPS) more promptly to help enable Her Majesty's Government to take action before a harmful substance takes a foothold in the UK.
FEWS is part of the Government's wider action, including the UK-wide Drugs Early Warning System, the New Psychoactive Substances Review, and the introduction of Temporary Class Drug Orders (TCDO) under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, to tackle the emergence of NPS.
This report describes activities undertaken, and provides results of the analysis of samples tested under FEWS between April 2013 and March 2014. It reports the identification of new substances (4 NPS) not previously seen in the UK and, where appropriate, action taken by Government in response. The report also highlights key learning points from the results and key messages on the harms and risks associated with the use of NPS.
New substances identified in the UK are reported to the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) through submissions to the UK Focal Point. 2 of the substances highlighted in this report are reported in the EMCDDA 2013 Annual Report on the implementation of EU Council Decision 2005/387/JHA; the information exchange, risk assessment and control of new psychoactive substances.
