Indonesia commends the work on the INCB as the guardian of the three international drug conventions. The 2009 report was a balanced evaluation on the challenges, including the abuse and diversion of illlict substances like ketamine. Indonesia endorsed the recommendation to reinforce national monitoring mechanisms. While it is important to reinforce control of precursors, the licit manufactur should also be ensured.
The ministry of health is the competent national authority on the export of drugs and precursors but such approvals are given following strict review. There are very strict penalties for unauthorised export of such substances.
