Colombia’s Law 30 of 1986 places authority with the Ministry of Health and Social Protection and the National Drug Council (NFE) to set and publish the lists of controlled substances.
Ministry of Social Protection Resolution 1478 of 2006 defines “medications subject to control” as having “one or more active ingredients of special control, catalogued as such in the conventions of narcotic drugs (1961), precursors (1988) and psychotropic (1971), or by the National Government,” noting that new dispositions of the United Nations will be followed in maintaining the lists. It then sets forth two lists in Articles 6 (State monopoly, in itemized list form) and 7 (controlled substances, referring to outside lists). By proclamation, Colombia regularly incorporates updates to the INCB lists into national law.
In 2009, Colombia indicated that N,N-dimethylamphetamine precursors would be added to Article 7.
