March 1, 2017 - A New Psychoactive Substances Act entered into force in Germany on 26 November 2016, controlling specific new psychoactive substances (NPS).

Under the new act, NPS are defined as any substance or preparation belonging to the specified generic (group) definitions for synthetic cannabinoids and compounds derived from 2-phenylethylamine.

The new act prohibits producing, trading, importing, offering and possessing NPS and empowers police and customs services to confiscate substances using their general powers to protect life and health.
