Precursor chemicals are chemicals that can be used in the manufacture of drugs. Due to the potential danger of such substances their trafficking, production, import, storage or use must be licensed, i.e. any activity with these substances requires a license.

The circulation of narcotic substances (of natural nature) and psychotropic substances is also subject to licensing.

The Precursor License is issued by the State Drugs and Medications Control Service of Ukraine. 

In order to understand whether the substance you use is a precursor chemical — you should check the list approved by law. It is not always obvious that the use of, for example, acetone or certain adhesive constituents in manufacturing may require from you a Precursor License. Our lawyers will be able to answer your most important question: Do you need a Precursor License and how to obtain one?

The validity period of a Precursor License is 5 years.

The period for obtaining a Precursor License with our company — 10 business days from the date of receiving all the documents from the Client.

We can also help you to get: 

  • a certificate from a narcologist for workers admitted to work with the substance;

  • a certificate from the Ministry of Internal Affairs confirming the absence of an outstanding or unexpunged criminal record for crimes of medium gravity, grave or especially grave crimes, or for a crime related to trafficking in narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors.

What is the procedure for obtaining a Precursor License?

The state policy and organizational basis for the regulation on the circulation of precursors is governed by the Law of Ukraine “On Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances and Precursors”.

The procedure for licensing activities related to circulation of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors is regulated by the Licensing Regulations approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 282 dated April 6, 2016.

The list of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors is approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine № 770 of May 6, 2000.

The circulation of precursors, narcotic and psychotropic substances means the activities with the substances specified in the List on cultivation of plants, development, production, manufacture, storage, transportation, transfer, acquisition, sale, import into the territory of Ukraine, export out of the territory of Ukraine, transit through the territory of Ukraine, use, destruction of substances.

The main procedural stages of obtaining a Precursor License are as follows:

  • Selection and inspection of the premises for carrying out the precursor activity. Our lawyers will provide you with full information about the requirements for the premises and check whether your premises meet the legal requirements;

  • Preparation of personnel documents. Sufficient time should be set aside for this step in order to obtain criminal records and narcology certificates for all personnel who will be admitted to work with precursors. There are also certain requirements for educational documents for such personnel.

  • Preparation of a package of documents, completion of statements and submission to the licensing authority.


Our lawyers will organize the entire process for you and take care of the execution and filing of documents with a guarantee of obtaining a Precursor License.

Making changes to the Precursor License

In case of any changes to the information that had been submitted when applying for the Precursor License (e.g. location of premises, personnel, etc.), the corresponding new data must be added to the license. The license holder has 30 days to do this.

Please note! If the changes relate to the premises, it will be necessary to obtain a new Permit to use the premises from the National Police. If the changes relate to personnel — you will need to provide documents for employees who will be admitted to work with precursors — certificates from a narcologist and the certificate of no criminal record, etc.

The procedure of making changes to the license is essentially a repeat of the procedure for the initial licensing of precursor activity.

Please check the cost of making changes to the Precursor License with our experts.

The procedure of obtaining a Precursor License in Ukraine

After an agreement on terms and cost of obtaining the Precursor License is reached, we conclude a legal services agreement with the Client. If necessary, our company provides assistance in obtaining certain certificates, for example, a certificate of no criminal record. After all the necessary documents are prepared and signed by the Client, our employees will submit a package of documents to the licensing authority.

After the licensing authority publishes on its website the decision of granting the Precursor License to our Client, we find the requisites for paying the state fee and send them to the Client. According to the current legislation, the state fee for the Precursor License must be paid within 10 business days from the date of the license approval. Delayed payment, even for one day, is grounds for revoking the license.

The original of the receipt (payment order with a bank stamp) must be kept by the license holder for the entire validity period of the license.

The above described standard procedure for obtaining a Precursor License may be changed to a more convenient option.
