Brochure: 25 years of monitoring and responding to new drugs in Europe


This brochure provides an overview of 25 years of the EU Early Warning System (EWS) on new psychoactive substances (NPS). Operated by the EMCDDA in close cooperation with Europol and other partners, it was the first regional early warning mechanism set up to monitor and respond to uncontrolled new drugs.
