Detail of outcome
This document sets out the government’s response to the issues raised during the consultation on proposals to reschedule ketamine from Part 1 of Schedule 4 to Schedule 2 to the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001.
The government’s response to the issues raised during the consultation on proposals to introduce electronic prescribing of Schedule 2 and 3 controlled drugs for NHS and private prescribers is available.
This follows reclassification under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (the 1971 Act) as a Class B drug on 10 June 2014.
More specifically on the record keeping, prescribing and safe custody requirements applicable to Schedule 2 drugs. Ketamine is currently a Schedule 4 Part 1 drug and therefore lightly regulated. These proposals have been prepared in discussion with the ACMD and the Department of Health.
