Every year, increasing numbers (and amounts) of new psychoactive substances (NPS) are detected and reported to the EMCDDA, by the BEWSD.
Since these substances are legal in the majority of cases, the Belgian drug legislation needed to be adapted.
To tackle this phenomenon, a final update to the Belgian drug legislation was published on November 25th, 2015.
Specifically, about 100 new substances have been added to the list of controlled substances, and are currently controlled.
As a result, these substances are now illegal to possess and sell without a narcotics license in Belgium.
This latest update can be found in the "Legislation" section of the BEWSD website; it can also be downloaded here.
