Decision XIV/3: Clarification of certain terminology related to controlled substances

The Fourteenth Meeting of the Parties decided in Dec. XIV/3:

  1. To note that the terms in past Decisions related to “used controlled substances” such as “recovered”, “recycled” and “reclaimed” have not been used uniformly and may be misinterpreted;
  2. To urge Parties to be precise from now in the terminology related to “used controlled substances” in future Decisions, and when appropriate, refer specifically to the definitions agreed in Decision IV/24.
