The UNODC Early Warning Advisory (EWA) on new psychoactive substances (NPS) was established in 2013 following a resolution passed by Member States at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs as a response to the emergence of NPS at the global level. The EWA aims to monitor, analyse and report trends on NPS, as a basis for effective evidence-based policy responses. The EWA provides access to information on NPS in a range of subject areas including NPS emergence and global monitoring, risk communication, chemical identification and analysis, toxicology, pharmacology, and national legislative responses by Member States.
The EWA thus serves as a repository for information on NPS leading to an improved understanding of their distribution and use at the global level and offers a platform for the provision of technical assistance to Member States. In order to identify the most harmful, persistent and prevalent NPS and assist in their prioritization for international control, the EWA was expanded in 2018 to collect toxicology data in post-mortem, clinical and other casework. This allows for the first time, the collection of data on harms associated with the use of NPS at a global level.
- Poly-drug use continues to feature highly in cases of fatalities associated with NPS.
- Benzodiazepine-type NPS are increasingly reported in cases of driving under the influence of drugs in some countries.
- Incidents of kratom identification in poly-drug use cases are increasingly reported in a number of countries.
