In the United Kingdom the Home Office has brought in an amendment to the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 which moves ketamine from Part 1 of Schedule 4 to the 2001 Regulations to Schedule 2. This change takes effect from 30th November 2015. Further details of the requirements for each of the schedules of controlled drugs can be found in the BSAVA Medicines Guide.
