The new Precursor Control Regulations have been approved and were published in Canada Gazette Part II on October 9, 2002. Refer to the News Release at http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/english/media/releases/2002/2002_65.htm and Canada Gazette Part II publication at http://canadagazette.gc.ca/partII/2002/20021009/pdf/g2-13621.pdf (SOR/2002 359 page 2139).
A phased-in implementation plan of the regulations has been developed. The most urgent component - the licence and permit requirement for the import and export of Class A precursors, as well as the licence for production - will come into force January 9, 2003. Full implementation will progress throughout 2003.
The Office of Controlled Substances is developing a series of guidance documents written as a companion to the Precursor Control Regulations to provide guidance on meeting the regulatory requirements under these Regulations. Document in this series include:
- Application for Class A Precursor Licences
- Requirements and Responsibilities of Licensed Dealers of Class A Precursors
- Application for Import, Export and Transit/Transhipment Permits
- Information Session on Precursor Control Regulations - Class B precursors (HTML Version) (PDF Version - 81 K)
The guidance document for Application for Class A Precursor licence and the application form are now available on the this website under Documents: Precursor Chemicals and Application forms: Precursor Chemicals respectively. Other guidance documents will be soon posted on the website in the near future.
