Please note that all salts and simple derivatives in the form of an ester or an ether of any of the substances mentioned are also regulated under the executive order on euphoriant substances.

The Schedule consists of the A, B, C, D and E lists.

The A list includes substances that must not be found in Denmark. The B, D and E lists include substances that must only be used for medical and scientific purposes.

If a substance is covered by the executive order on euphoriant substances, private individuals are not allowed to receive or possess the substance unless it has been prescribed as a medicinal product by a doctor.
