Guidelines for the Safe Handling of Synthetic Opioids for Law Enforcement and Customs Officers

The  United  Nations  Office  on  Drugs  and  Crime  (UNODC)  guidelines for the Safe Handling of Synthetic Opioids for Law Enforcement and Customs Officers form part of a series of technical guidance and training materials published by the Laboratory and Scientific Service (LSS) which have been developed as practical and evidence-based guidance to support law enforcement and customs officers in the safe handling and management of synthetic drugs, with a focus on synthetic opioids. These guidelines focus on the exposure risks posed by synthetic opioids as a class of substances and set out evidence-based exposure control processes to minimize the risk for officers in various operational roles and environments with a focus on high-risk operational activities, evidence handling and laboratory-based roles.
