Reclassification of Products Containing Tramadol under The Misuse of Drugs Regulations

Reclassification of Products Containing Tramadol under

The Misuse of Drugs Regulations.

The recent Home Office Consultation paper on the reclassification of products containing Tramadol as a Controlled Drug Schedule 3, was ratified by a Parliamentary Order on the 10th June 2014.

It is a requirement now that NVS as a supplier receives fully completed Controlled Drug requisition from veterinary practices for products containing Tramadol before any product can be despatched.

Please see below table for products affected by this change in legislation which will now require a requisition when ordered.

Please find a link to the Home Office Circular 008/2014: A change to the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971- Control of NBOMes, Benzofurans, Lisdexamphetamine, Tramadol, Zopiclone, Zaleplon and Reclassification of Ketamine at:
