Yellow List - List of Narcotic Drugs Under International Control

The Yellow List contains the full list of internationally controlled narcotic drugs under the 1961 Convention. The Yellow List also contains information regarding the synonyms and trade names of those substances, conversion factors for calculating the pure drug content of bases and salts. The INCB updates the Yellow List as new substances are scheduled under the 1961 convention or when any information in the other parts have been updated.

Link to the UNODC scientific publication Multilingual Dictionary of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances under International Control (MLD) 

The MLD is conceptualized as a multi-field dictionary, combining chemistry with aspects of international drug control. It consists of individual monographs providing accurate and comprehensive information on the chemical names of all controlled substances under the Conventions and updated information on other existing chemical names and variants, synonyms, common generic and trade names (Volume 1). The MLD provides also an alphabetical cross-index of all names included in the monographs, bilingual lists of all scheduled narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, and information on the international regime of control with details on the scheduling history and the international control status of the substances (Volume 2).
