      Dear Mr ........

      Thank you for your email of 14 March about the Government’s latest announcements on anabolic steroids. Your email has been passed to the Drugs and Alcohol Unit and I have been asked to respond.

      The Government’s independent expert advisers, the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD), highlighted in its 2010 report (‘Consideration of the Anabolic Steroids’ available at http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/publica...eroids-report/) its concerns about the increasing use and popularity of anabolic steroids for the purposes of body building and image enhancement by the general public, in particular young people. It recommended that anabolic steroids should remain Class C drugs under the 1971 Act and while there should continue to be no possession offence for personal use, the legal framework needs to be strengthened to reduce availability via the importation of anabolic steroids not intended for medical use.

      The Government accepted the ACMD’s recommendations to restrict the importation of anabolic steroids for personal administration to personal custody and to remove the term “medicinal product†from the legislation to provide clarity and support better enforcement of the legislation at the borders. Adopting these changes will help to prevent any exploitation of the legislation by suppliers and traffickers who will want to profit from importing anabolic steroids, particularly in the run up to the 2012 Olympics. The Statutory Instrument which implements these changes was laid in Parliament on 30 March and will come into force on 23 April 2012. From this date, any importation of anabolic steroids for personal use must be carried out in person through UK borders. Any importation through postal, courier or freight services will become illegal and will be liable to seizure and further investigation by the UK Border Force.

      We advise that any person suffering from a medical condition requiring medication in the form of anabolic steroids should obtain their medicines via their healthcare provider who will make a professional judgment based on clinical need.

      Anabolic steroids can also have adverse effects on health if misused. The FRANK website www.talktofrank.com provides detailed information about anabolic steroids and the effects of their use. A copy of the statutory instrument amending the legislation on steroids with its accompanying documents (explanatory memorandum and impact assessment) is available on the UK’s legislation website at www.legislation.gov.uk.

      Yours sincerely,

      Desmond Niimoi
      Drugs and Alcohol Unit
