It has become increasingly critical to maintain the ability to launch backtracking investigations across borders to indentify the origins of the chemicals. Such investigations, will help tighten regulatory controls. Forensic intelligence must be made available to law enforcement personnel.
Specifically, the UNODC will support capacity building and platforms to support law enforcement operations. UNODC is developing a team to guide the global and regional technical assistance on precursors. The precursor team will remain in contact with other programmes, like the UNODC’s container control programme, to improve cross-sector analysis.
Forensic intelligence provides the basis for accurate information. UNODC will utilise its position to analyse precursors and substances used to manufacture narcotics.
