2. Summary of delegate's final decisions

Part A - Final decisions on matters referred to an expert advisory committee

Joint Advisory Committee on Chemicals and Medicines Scheduling (ACCS-ACMS #14)

2. Summary of delegate's final decisions

Substance Interim decision
Nicotine The delegates' final decision is that the current scheduling of nicotine remains appropriate.
Pentobarbital (pentobarbitone) The delegates' final decision is that the current scheduling of pentobarbital remains appropriate.
Cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinols and cannabidiol The delegate has deferred making a final decision at this time regarding the possible rescheduling of cannabis. The deferral of a final decision will allow sufficient time for the delegate to thoroughly consider all public submissions on the interim decision, including two late submissions. Further information on the final decision regarding the possible rescheduling of cannabis is likely to be provided by late May 2017. Should the final decision be released at this time and require an implementation date, it will be announced at the time of publication.
Epidermal Growth Factor The delegates' final decision is that the current scheduling of epidermal growth factor remains appropriate.
