Reviews of our Clients

Our firm provides legal services for obtaining the Precursors License and helps Clients to properly handle the formalities for such business.

Today we will talk about the case of obtaining a license for precursors when the number of required personnel far exceeds the usual number.

The core of the subject: registration of a large number of persons allowed to work with precursors

In November 2019, we were contacted by a municipal enterprise with a request for obtaining a license for business activity on precursors. The Client had all documents on the premises properly executed, but he had some staff-related questions.

The fact is that there were about 40 people who had to be allowed to work with precursors. In this view, the management of the enterprise had a number of staff-related questions, which we answered during our cooperation.

Are there any restrictions on the number of people who may be allowed to work with precursors?

A number of people that may be allowed to work with precursors is unlimited. Pursuant to the licensing regulations, the licensees may have as many employees as they need to ensure efficient business activity.

Does the number of people to be allowed to work with precursors affect the licensing procedure?

The number of people to be allowed to work with chemicals affects only the time of the procedure and the training process, because:

  • every person needs to get a certificate of no criminal record;
  • each of them must undergo drug testing and obtain the relevant narcologist’s certificate.

Any this, accordingly, requires the time and money. In addition, lawyers will have to spend a little more time to enter information about all employees into the statement in order to obtain the license than in case of a standard licensing procedure, where the number of authorized workers usually does not exceed ten persons.

What happens if not all persons are listed in the order of admission?

It might seem to facilitate the work, time and budget. The procedures for organizing a drug testing of forty people and five persons are different.

But officially, those who are not included in the list won’t be allowed to work with precursors. If they actually work with these substances and this fact is revealed, the enterprise will incur penalties.
