License in accordance with regulations (EC) on drug precursors

Operators and users shall obtain a licence from the competent authorities of the Member State in which they are established before they may possess or place on the market scheduled substances of category 1 of Annex I of the Drug Precursor’s legislation. Any operator holding a licence shall supply scheduled substances of category 1 of the previous mentioned Annex I only to operators or users who also hold a licence and have signed a customer declaration.

Cases where a license is not required:

Pharmacies, dispensaries of veterinary medicine, customs, police, armed forces and official laboratories of competent authorities may be exempted from the requirement of licensing pursuant to Article 6(1) of Regulation (EC) No 111/2005 as far as these operators use drug precursors within the scope of their official duties. The operators set out in the first paragraph are also exempted from the following:

(a) the provision of the documentation referred to in Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 111/2005; (b) the obligation to appoint a responsible officer set out in Article 3(1) of the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/1011.

The license shall be issued by the competent authority of the Member State in which the operator is established. In Slovenia, licenses are issued by the Chemicals Office of the Republic of Slovenia. The competent authority may suspend or revoke a license when the conditions under which it was granted are no longer met or when there are reasonable grounds to suspect that there is a risk of diversion of the scheduled substances.

Renewal term

The competent authority can limit the validity of the licence for a period, that is no longer than 3 years.
