Drug control

Drug control has been a major international concern since the first international conference on this issue was convened in 1909. The international community created a system for drug control under the supervision of the Leage of Nations and, since 1946, continued it through the United Nations.

The United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) was established in 1946. It is a functional commission under the ECOCOC with the mission to analyse
the world drug situation and strenghten the international control system.

International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) is the independent organ for the control of the implementation of the United Nations drug conventions.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), headquartered in Vienna, is the administrative centre for drug related issues. It supports the UN member states in the struggle against drug abuse and illicit trafficking and in implementing international drug treaties.
