II.3)Description of the field or fields covered by the call for expressions of interest:

The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), based in Lisbon, Portugal, was established to provide the European Union and its Member States with 'factual, objective, reliable and comparable information at European level concerning drugs and drug addiction and their consequences'(1). In addition, the EMCDDA plays a central role in the information exchange, early warning, and risk assessment of new psychoactive

Substances. For additional information on the EMCDDA, please see http://www.emcdda.europa.eu

In order to ensure a balanced assessment of the risks posed by a new psychoactive substance, the EMCDDA Scientific Committee may be extended as deemed necessary by the EMCDDA Director, acting on the advice of the Chairperson of the Scientific Committee, by including additional experts. These experts are designated by the Director from a list of experts approved by the Management Board of the EMCDDA in view of their experience and

Expertise related to the areas assessed during a risk assessment.

This call is addressed to experts who wish to be considered for inclusion on a list of experts to be used by the Director to extend the Scientific Committee for the purposes of ensuring a balanced assessment of the risks posed by new psychoactive substances in accordance with Article 5c of the EMCDDA Regulation (as amended)(2).

The selected experts will be included, in a personal capacity, on a list to be approved by the EMCDDA Management Board for a three year period. They will give their opinions completely independently of the Member States and the European Union Institutions. The EMCDDA Management Board may decide to extend the validity of the approved list of experts for further three years.

Risk assessment meetings are held on an ad hoc basis in accordance with Article 5(c) of the EMCDDA Regulation (as amended) at the EMCDDA premises in Lisbon. The vehicular working language of the risk assessment procedure and risk assessment meetings is English.

Each expert designated by the Director to extend the Scientific Committee for the purpose of a risk assessment will be entitled to receive an indemnity for each day of attendance to the meeting held for this assessment.

Furthermore, they will be entitled to the payment of the travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses exposed for this attendance. The conditions and terms of the above-referred entitlements will be the ones applied for the appointed members of the Scientific Committee, in accordance with the rules in force at the EMCDDA for this purpose.

Each expert designated by the Director to extend the Scientific Committee for the purpose of a risk assessment shall sign a declaration of independence in relation to the performance of his/her duties in and for this body and shall fill in and sign a written declaration of interest covering current and past interests up to five years before the date of the declaration. These declarations will be made available for public scrutiny on the EMCDDA website, with due respect to EU rules on protection of personal data.

Pursuant to the rules applicable for the definition of the list of experts to be used to extend the EMCDDA Scientific Committee for the purposes of the assessment of the risks posed by new psychoactive substances, these experts must be nationals of a Member State of the European Union (EU) or of a Country which has concluded an agreement with the latter for the purpose of the participation in the work of the EMCDDA. This requirement is a condition of eligibility for the selection and the inclusion on the above referred list. If this condition is not met, this will determine the exclusion of the concerned person from the selection process and/or from the approved list of experts, as from the moment when this condition is not met.

With regard to the above, and by taking into account the on-going process concerning the withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the EU (Brexit), United Kingdom’s nationals will no longer satisfy this condition as of the date of this withdrawal, to be determined in accordance with Article 50 of the Treaty of the European Union (TFEU).

However, if at this date the Agreement to be concluded between the EU and the UK on this withdrawal (Withdrawal Agreement, as endorsed by the European Council on 25.11.2018) enters into force, United Kingdom’s nationals will be considered to meet the aforementioned condition of nationality during the transition period established by this Agreement.

Further information on this call, including procedures, arrangements and the requirements for eligibility and selection, are available from the EMCDDA website http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/about/sc/call-extendedscientific-committee-ews-nps-2019

Applications shall be submitted via email to: expertlist19@emcdda.europa.eu
