Side event on the International Import Export Authorization System (I2ES) during the 57th session of CND


INCB organized a side event during the 57th session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) on Thursday, 20 March 2014 and, together with the UNODC IT Service, presented the International Import Export Authorization System (I2ES). The side event was preceded by a workshop on Tuesday, 18 March 2014, for representatives of countries actively involved in the development of I2ES.    

Participants from Member States were shown a presentation of the enhanced functionality of the system, which is to help Governments to speed up the process of issuing import and export authorizations for narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances in a secure way and to verify the authenticity of such authorizations in real time. The web-based and user-friendly system will be available to interested Governments free of charge once it is officially launched, which is planned for mid-2014.

The administration and maintenance, however, require sustainable funding. The video and explanatory PowerPoint presented at the side event are available for download, below.
