Temporary Bans for HUNGARY

Temporary Bans
Government Decree 66/2012 (HU)
The Government Regulation 66/2012. (IV.02.) valid from 3 April 2012 allows the rapid control of NPS. Accordingly, following a rapid assessment, NPS can be placed under temporary control, but a full risk assessment needs to be conducted within three years of their scheduling. As a result of the risk assessment the substance will be either scheduled on the psychotropic drugs schedules (schedules of Act XXV of 1998) or dropped from the schedule of psychoactive substances. In the case of compound groups, a risk assessment is not going to be applied unless there is any substance belonging to that group that fulfills the requirements of the rapid assessment.
