Multilingual List of Narcotic Drugs under International Control

The first edition of the Multilingual List of Narcotic Drugs under International Control was prepared in 1958 in pursuance of resolution 49(IV) of the Economic and Social Council, which provided inter alia that the Secretary-General should undertake "the revision of the list of narcotic drugs falling within the scope of the various conventions". Since that time, the Commission has recommended that it should be kept up to date by the issue of new editions from time to time and a second edition was issued in 1963. The third and latest edition of the Multilingual List of Narcotic Drugs under International Control * was published in January 1969 as document E/CN.7/513.

This 273-page printed document gives, for each narcotic drug, the various names and synonyms by which it is known in many languages, the chemical and structural formulae, the percentage of anhydrous base, the authority whereby it is under control and the control régime applicable, together with relevant information on its salts. This information is given in English, French, Russian and Spanish and names are also included

Sales No.: E/F/S/R.69.XI.1, price $U.S. 3.00 (or equivalent in other currencies).

in certain other languages and in non-Latin characters. The third edition was based on material from a wide variety of sources - the most important being the replies of Governments to the inquiry sent by the Secretariat, information provided by representatives on the Commission of Narcotic Drugs as well as by Permanent Missions to the United Nations Office at Geneva, relevant national laws and regulations, annual reports and the scientific literature.

Developments in the field of narcotic drugs during the last ten years is clearly indicated by a comparison of the first with the third editions of the Multilingual List. The first edition covered the sixty-one drugs then under control and provided information on approximately seventy-five salts and derivatives, while the third edition includes the one hundred narcotic drugs now under control together with approximately one hundred and eighty salts and derivatives.

At its 23rd session the Commission on Narcotic Drugs considered that the Multilingual List is of great value to all those concerned with narcotic drugs and it expressed high appreciation for this document, which it hoped would have a wide distribution.
