Groups of “NBOMe” compounds, some of which were subject to control under a Temporary Class Drugs Order (SI 2013/1294), now come under permanent control as Class A drugs under the Act. In addition, Ketamine is reclassified as a Class B drug, Lisdexamphetamine becomes a Class B drug and groups of benzofuran compounds, some of which were subject to control under a Temporary Class Drugs Order (SI 2013/1294), are now brought under permanent control as Class B drugs.
Furthermore, Tramadol (an opioid analgesic), Zaleplon and Zopiclone (both used to treat insomnia) are brought under control as Class C drugs under the Act.
This widens the scope of forensic laboratories measurements in order to reliably analyse all these controlled substances.
