This publication presents the data and findings of the risk assessment on α-PVP (1-phenyl- 2-(1-pyrrolidinyl)-1-pentanone), carried out by the extended Scientific Committee of the EMCDDA on 18 November 2015. α-PVP is the eleventh new psychoactive substance to be risk assessed under the terms of Council Decision 2005/387/JHA. On the basis of the Risk Assessment Report — and on the initiative of the European Commission — on 27 June 2016, the Council decided that α-PVP should be subject to control measures across the Member States.
