What is NDS? • A Management Information System (MIS) for national and international drug control • Automates range of day-to-day drug control activities (import/export permits, licensing of companies, domestic transactions, company management) • Automates compliance with drug control conventions on narcotics, psychotropic substances and precursor chemicals • Enables exchange of data electronically on national and international levels and fosters interoperability between different systems using XML standard -PEN system

  4. Who Should Use NDS? • Drug control authorities regulating narcotics, psychotropic substances, precursor chemicals • Drug control authorities that deal with sufficient numbers of transactions per year • Drug control authorities that have the technical infrastructure and commitment to sustain the use of NDS OR Who can partner with other bodies which provide regional services over the Internet

New features in NDS 6 • Enables exchange of data electronically on national and international levels and fosters interoperability between different systems using XML standard • Integration with other online systems (e.g., Precursor Pre-Export Notification System PEN Online) • Special module for online entry of endorsements (e.g., customs offices can remotely enter information regarding imports/exports; ensures accuracy of data and prohibits abuse, e.g., double/triple use of permits; Mexico pioneered this feature. Also used in Central Asian countries • MyNDS - Open system allowing integratìon with other systems and building of extensions (e.g., Excel processor – custom application built for Switzerland)

  9. Why NDS? • NDS is a standard system that is now recognized worldwide • NDS can be used via the Internet • NDS combines the control of narcotics, psychotropic substances and precursor chemicals in one system • NDS combines national and international drug control in one system • NDS permits data exchange from/to INCB and between member states using XML (e.g. assessment/estimates, PEN Online)

  10. Why NDS? • NDS enables the monitoring of nationally controlled substances. • NDS is customizable to your national needs, including the data to be entered • NDS is available in English, Spanish, French (Portuguese, Russian) and supports 80 other national languages • NDS is regularly updated in accordance with changing user requirements (5th User Group Meeting 2003 sponsored by Canada, February 2006 – expert group meeting, upcoming 6th user group meeting in May 2007 - Mexico) and changes in international drug control regimes
