Background, and use of the guidelines

The disposal issue, and related topics, has been discussed at numerous meetings of the United Nations (UN) Commission of Narcotic Drugs over the past 15 years. In 1989 and 1990, a United Nations Expert Group discussed the topic of pre-trial destruction of seized narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances, and chemicals [1, 2].
