Project Ion

Project Ion ( International Operations on NPS) is the international operational initiative of the Board supporting national authorities' efforts in preventing non-scheduled new psychoactive substances (NPS) of abuse from reaching consumer markets.  Activities are primarily engaged in the coordination, collection and communication of strategic and operational information and intelligence related to synthetic NPS with little or no known medical, scientific or industrial uses. Activities under this project are directed by the NPS Task Force.

 

     
     

Project OPIOIDS

Member States acknowledged with grave concern the international challenge posed by the illicit manufacture, trafficking and non-medical use of synthetic opioids. The synthetic opioids crisis is fuelled by voluminous open and darknet transactions, use of anonymous cryptocurrencies and difficult to detect express shipments through the international postal system and by private couriers. INCB is uniquely placed to advance dialogs on the opioids crisis, with a track record for developing partnerships with national, regional and international authorities.

The Operational Partnerships to Interdict Opioids' Illicit Distribution and Sales (OPIOIDS) Project focuses on developing partnerships and practical actions with governments and relevant industries, supporting efforts in preventing dangerous synthetic opioids, fentanyl-related substances and their precursors from reaching non-medical consumer markets.

 
             
             
  • PEN Online

    Governments which are parties to the 1988 Convention are obliged to provide pre-export notifications to Governments of importing countries and territories that have officially requested them. The Pre-Export Notification (PEN) Online system was developed by the INCB to facilitate this exchange and is a fundamental tool for preventing the diversion of precursors from international trade. The above link will bring users to the login page of the system.
  • PICS

    The Precursors Incident Communication System (PICS) is a secure online tool developed by the INCB to enhance real-time communication and information sharing between national authorities on precursors incidents. The above link will bring registered users to the login page. Government agencies that would like to be granted access to PICS should send an email to incb.pics@un.org
