Yellow List – List of Narcotic Drugs Under International Control (International Narcotics Control Board (INCB))

Original/alternative title:  Yellow List – List of Narcotic Drugs Under International Control


The Yellow List contains the full list of internationally controlled narcotic drugs under the 1961 Convention. The Yellow List also contains information regarding the synonyms and trade names of those substances, conversion factors for calculating the pure drug content of bases and salts. The INCB updates the Yellow List as new substances are scheduled under the 1961 convention or when any information in the other parts have been updated.

For the most up-to-date version, we strongly recommend following the link to the repository on the INCB website.
