The European monitoring centre for drugs and drug addiction (EMCDDA), in collaboration with SICAD, COPOLAD, and the Trans-European drug information (TEDI) network are organising an international symposium on drug checking.

The aims of this symposium are to:

  • explore drug markets dynamics with an international comparison of cocaine and MDMA trends, purity and adulteration in producing and consuming countries through European, Colombian and Australian drug checking test results
  • discuss the challenges and opportunities of drug checking within national drug policies

The symposium will include a series of expert talks followed by an interactive discussion.
