EMCDDA and Europol signed new working arrangement

The Director of the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) Alexis Goosdeel and the Executive Director of Europol, Catherine De Bolle, signed today, in the margins of the Justice and Home Affairs Council, a new working arrangement between the two agencies. This new arrangement will reflect recent legislative changes regarding the early-warning and risk assessment of new psychoactive substances and strengthen further the agencies’ cooperation and information exchange on drug-related security threats.

The Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos stressed that “enhanced cooperation and information exchange between the two main European agencies working on the fight against drugs is crucial. The implementation of the new legislation on new psychoactive substances will better protect our citizens, and in particular our young generation who are most affected by the emergence of new psychoactive substances.”

Besides the working arrangement with Europol, the EMCDDA has also signed, or is in the process of signing, working arrangements with the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). These working arrangements – or their updates – became necessary in view of new legislation on new psychoactive substances that applies as of 23 November 2018 (see Daily News of 23 November 2018 and the press release of the EMCDDA).
