Psychoactive Substances Regulatory Authority

As of 12:01am on 8 May 2014 the Psychoactive Substances Amendment Act (the Amendment Act) came into force. This gives effect to the Government’s decision to introduce legislation ending interim product approvals under the Psychoactive Substances Act.

The legislation revokes all interim product approvals and all interim retail and wholesale licences with immediate effect. Under section 88 of the Psychoactive Substances Act the Authority is issuing an urgent recall of all products that had interim product approval.
