Duties and Responsibilities

Background of the assignment:

The International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) is a treaty-based, independent and quasi-judicial control organ, for monitoring the implementation of the international drug control treaties. As regards the illicit manufacture of, trafficking in and use of precursors, INCB identifies weaknesses in national and international control systems and contributes to correcting such situations.

INCB has repeatedly drawn attention to two key challenges in international precursor control, namely the proliferation of non-scheduled chemicals, including designer precursors, and the diversion of precursor chemicals from domestic distribution channels for illicit drug manufacture.

To take stock of the status of implementation of the existing international precursor control system, the scope and extent of domestic controls pursuant to article 12, paragraph 8, of the 1988 Convention, and the extent to which Governments may be able to cooperate internationally on chemicals not under national control but identified in illicit drug markets, the Board has surveyed all Governments in 2021. Summary results of the survey were incorporated in the 2021 report on precursors, which will be launched on 10 March 2022. Part of the information will also be made available to all Governments on the Board’s secure portal, as part of the Information Package on the Control of Precursors.

Purpose of the assignment:

INCB seeks a consultant to assist with the research, analysis, compilation and organization of information available, including that provided to INCB, on the national legislation and control measures applied to precursors used in illicit drug manufacture. Information includes the texts of national drug precursor legislation, official documents and communications received from Governments including replies to a survey conducted in 2021. The organization of the material should be in such way as to provide for incorporation and continued monitoring of amendments and updates to the control measures as they become available. Work may also involve review of official Government web sites in different languages, and follow-up with selected Governments to verify information and/or fill existing data gaps.

• Proficiency in basic Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, etc.) is required.

• Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are desirable;

• Ability to deal with difficult situation with flexibility and innovation while maintaining high performance standards is desirable.

Academic Qualifications:
An advanced university degree (Master’s degree or equivalent) in law or legal studies, criminology, economics, business administration political science, or related discipline is required. A first-level university degree in similar fields in combination with two additional years of qualifying experience may be accepted in lieu of the advanced university degree.

• A minimum of 10 years of proven professional experience in the legal area, which may include drafting and/ or enforcement of laws with a government and/or an international organization is required.
• Proven experience in legal research and analysis as well as relevant software and legal tools is required.
• Proven technical competence and experience in the review and monitoring of government legislation, specifically drug laws and regulation, is strongly desirable.
