Misuse of Drugs (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2014.

The purpose of these Regulations is to amend the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 1988. The Regulations of 1988 apply controls to the groups of drugs specified in Schedules 1 to 5 of the Regulations (being drugs to which the Misuse of Drugs Acts 1977 and 1984 apply), the effect of which is to impose restrictions on the
production, supply, importation and exportation of the drugs in question, which vary according to the extent to which these drugs are used for medical or scientific
purposes and having regard to the likelihood of their being abused.

These Regulations amend the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 1988 by adding certain additional substances to Schedule 1 of the Regulations, and increasing the
extent of the controls applicable to 4-Hydroxybutanoic acid. These Regulations may be cited as the Misuse of Drugs (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2014.  Download S.I. No. 583  here.
