“EMCDDA–Europol Joint Report on a new psychoactive substance: 1-phenyl-2-(1-pyrrolidinyl)-1-pentanone (α-PVP)”.
Joint Reports, Publications Office of the European Union. 2015.
In May 2015 the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and Europol examined the available information on the new psychoactive substance
1-phenyl-2-(1-pyrrolidinyl)-1-pentanone, commonly known as α-pyrrolidinovalerophenone (α-PVP), through a joint assessment based upon the following criteria:
1. the amount of the material seized;
2. evidence of organised crime involvement;
3. evidence of international trafficking;
4. analogy with better-studied compounds;
5. evidence of the potential for further (rapid) spread; and,
6. evidence of cases of serious intoxication or fatalities.
The EMCDDA and Europol agreed that the information collected on α-PVP satisfied all criteria (1 to 6). The two agencies therefore concluded that sufficient information had
been accumulated to merit the production of a Joint Report on α-PVP as stipulated by Article 5.1 of the Council Decision.
