Expert Groups

 

The Supply Reduction Unit (SRU) manages two groups of experts, the Group of Experts on Chemical Substances and Pharmaceutical Products and the Group of Experts on Maritime Narcotrafficking which are fora for member states to exchange best practices and expertise, and provide a regional perspective and analysis on trends, threats and challenges.

Group of Experts on Chemical Substances and Pharmaceutical Products:

The Group of Experts on Chemical Substances and Pharmaceutical Products brings together technical, regulatory and policy oriented representatives from member states along with international professionals concerned with the production, smuggling and diversion of precursor chemicals used in the production of illicit drugs. The meetings provide a platform for the exchange of up-to-date information, knowledge, best practices and experiences among the different national, regional and international stakeholders, and foster interagency and cross-country collaboration through well-established working relationships.

Inputs from the group also allow for identification of emerging and persistent threats, and enable the SRU to determine the best possible way forward in addressing them. The Group also develops valuable reference tools and comprehensive evidence-based studies, model regulations, and guidelines to support OAS member states in strengthening their chemical control capacity, and updating their national legislative and regulatory frameworks.

Group of Experts on Maritime Narcotrafficking:

The Group of Experts on Maritime Narcotrafficking constitutes a forum for member states to exchange information and expertise, while fostering regional cooperation in countering drug trafficking in the maritime domain. The group provides a hemispheric perspective on maritime drug trafficking trends, multilateral interdiction operations, and prosecutorial related challenges in drug maritime interdiction. As such, the group has become an important source in the region when it comes to the publication of relevant materials, such as manuals, best practices on drug interdiction operations, guidelines, and protocols, with a focus on information sharing and inter-agency/cross-border cooperation.
