This regular liaison is carried out mostly by e-mail. Network members are encouraged to discuss, at national level, information on new substances and new developments at an early stage even if substantive evidence is limited;  6-monthly reports to the EMCDDA detailing occurrences of substances covered by the EWS as notified by organisations participating in the network; carry out background research to identify basic information (chemistry, availability, pharmacology and toxicology) where feasible. Obtain analytical data on the new substance from the network sources;  Be the national (UK) contact for the EMCDDA, receiving information from it and disseminating this within the UK as appropriate.

In addition, the contractor will from time to time be required to coordinate and/or contribute, and often under the guidance of the Head of the Focal Point, to other ad-hoc requests relevant to the EWS such as: • Deal with specific requests from Home Office/Advisory Council on Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) on EWS matters etc
