DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

CONTROLLED DRUGS AND SUBSTANCES ACT

Notice to interested parties — Proposed amendment to Schedule III to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and the Schedule to Part J of the Food and Drug Regulations

This notice provides interested stakeholders with the opportunity to provide comments on Health Canada’s proposal to add the following substances to Schedule III to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) and to the Schedule to Part J of the Food and Drug Regulations (FDR):

  • Benzylpiperazine (BZP) [1-benzylpiperazine] and its salts, isomers and salts of isomers, and
  • Trifluoromethylphenylpiperazine (TFMPP) [1-(3-trifluoromethylphenyl)piperazine] and its salts, isomers and salts of isomers.

The substances BZP and TFMPP are used recreationally in Canada for their hallucinogenic and stimulant effects. BZP has also been found as an ingredient in products marketed for weight loss, despite the fact that no products containing BZP or TFMPP have been authorized for sale in Canada under the FDR. While the extent of their use in Canada is unknown, products containing BZP and TFMPP are available domestically for sale on the Internet and in specialty retail outlets (head shops, sex shops, etc.), and pills containing BZP and TFMPP have been marketed as a safe and legal alternative to 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine, commonly known as ecstasy. In addition, Canada Border Services Agency has notified Health Canada of increasing volumes of BZP and TFMPP being imported into Canada. This is supported by the number of samples of drugs seized by law enforcement that were analyzed by Health Canada’s Drug Analysis Service and found to contain BZP and/or TFMPP, which has increased from 8 samples in 2006 to 2 559 samples in 2011.

The ready availability of BZP and TFMPP poses a potential risk to the health and safety of Canadians. Effects associated with the use of these substances include increased body temperature, increased blood pressure, dilated pupils, increased euphoria, alertness, and/or paranoia. Taken together in high doses, BZP and TFMPP may cause hallucinations, slowed breathing and/or convulsions. Scientific evidence suggests these substances have a medium to high potential for abuse.

Although neither substance is included in the Schedule to any of the United Nations Drug Control Conventions, a number of countries have already elected to regulate BZP and/or TFMPP as controlled substances. For example, the United States, the European Union, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium and Denmark all regulate BZP as a controlled substance while New Zealand also regulates TFMPP as a controlled substance.

Including BZP and TFMPP in Schedule III to the CDSA would prohibit the following activities with these substances: possession, trafficking, possession for the purpose of trafficking, importation, exportation, possession for the purpose of exportation, and production. Inclusion in the Schedule to Part J to the FDR would provide a means by which research involving these substances, if required, could be carried out in Canada. The scheduling of BZP and TFMPP will also enable law enforcement agencies to take action under the CDSA against suspected illegal activities involving these substances.

The publication of this notice begins a 30-day comment period. This notice is further to the Notice of Intent to Interested Parties (NOI) published on November 22, 2008 (www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2008/2008-11-22/html/notice-avis-eng.html#d105), on Health Canada’s proposal to include a wider range of piperazine derivatives in one of the Schedules to the CDSA. Information received in response to the 2008 NOI has informed Health Canada’s decision to limit this regulatory action to the scheduling of BZP and TFMPP only.

If you are interested in this process or have comments on this notice, please contact Elizabeth Dussault, Regulatory Policy Division, Office of Controlled Substances, Address Locator 3503D, 123 Slater Street, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9, by fax at 613-946-4224 or by email at OCS_regulatorypolicy-BSC_politiquereglementaire@hc-sc.gc.ca.
