EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

Parliament is required under the consultation procedure to deliver its opinion within three months on the draft Council implementing decision on subjecting N-(1-phenethylpiperidin-4-yl)-N-phenylacrylamide (acryloylfentanyl) to control measures.

The risk assessment report jointly drawn up by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and Europol, which was published on 17 November 2016, concludes that this psychoactive substance is a synthetic opioid structurally similar to fentanyl, a controlled substance widely used in medicine as an adjunct to general anaesthesia during surgery and for pain management. The bulk of production takes place in China.

The report notes that acryloylfentanyl has been available in the EU since April 2016 and has been detected in six Member States. Forty-seven deaths associated with the substance have been reported by three Member States, together with 20 acute intoxications apparently due to acryloylfentanyl.

Accordingly, in view of the toxic and hazardous nature of the substance, which represents a health and social risk, and in line with the EMCDDA and Europol conclusions, your rapporteur recommends that the draft Council implementing decision be approved.
