UK Government considers controlling drugs by biological effect in addition to chemical structure

The UK government recently published a report looking into the effectiveness and issues of the UK’s Misuse of Drugs act and the challenges that “Legal Highs” pose.

Among one of the recommendation was to consider controlling drugs by biological effect in addition to chemical structure. Here at Scitegrity we are already working on methods to ensure Controlled Substances Squared (CS2) is able to ensure your compliance to this new approach if enacted, which other countries are also considering.

Built on industry leading technology from BioVia, CS2 is able to automatically scan large corporate collections structurally and identify controlled substances from a variety of countries including:- UK, Switzerland, USA, Canada, France, Germany and many others. Each hit is given full contextual information both relating to chemically why it’s controlled and information on the legislation. Administrators within companies can also upload their own instructions, SOPs and documentation to legislation allowing for more company contextual information.

In addition to automatic overnight scans, a simple but powerful web based interface allows users to search and check lists of substances on demand, again with full contextual information on hits.

Weekly data updates issued by Scitegrity and automatically applied to the system ensure up to date compliance. A company controlled substance administrator can also apply legislation over-rides to go above and beyond the law or adjust context sensitive hit results as required at the substance-legislation at level.

Search can be called via webservices and a Scitegrity cloud based hosted instance is available for smaller companies. Please click here for details and a short video
