Netherlands RC Ban - Important Info
   19/10/2019 11:21:55    0 Comments

We have an important update to make.

We would like to inform customers about the intended ban on NPS (aka research chemicals) in the Netherlands. In April 2019 the Dutch government stated their intentions to amend the Opium Act to ban entire classes of NPS rather than individual compounds, as it currently stands. Although there has been no further official statement from the government, we have just been informed, from a trusted source, that the government will ban 3 different groups of NPS. Other legal sources we have contact with have suggested the new legislation will largely replicate the German NpSG and include (nearly) all conceivable derivatives of the phenethylamine class. Really, we can only speculate as to the specific groups to be banned but it would be reasonable to assume that all currently available phenethylamines (including cathinones, phenidates and phenmetrazines) and synthetic cannabinoids would be among them.

We still don't know when this ban might occur but new legislation within the European Union is listed on the Europa website 90 days before it is due to come into force. This means we should get around 90 days notice before we must cease selling and destroy certain goods.

Since the vast majority of RCs either originate from or move through the Netherlands, this ban will have a detrimental impact on the world supply of many RCs on wholesale and retail level.

RareChems is working hard with Lizard Labs to source/produce new and interesting products to replace the favourites that will eventually be banned. However, it would be prudent for customers to keep stock of certain RCs for any long-term research projects.

We will update customers as and when we get more news.
