The Loop is a member of the The Trans-European Drug Information project (TEDI) which is a network of European Drug Checking services that share their expertise and data within a European monitoring and information system. TEDI has developed a database system that collects, monitors and analyses the evolution of various European drug trends in recreational settings.
The aim of this monitoring and information system is to help to optimise public health, prevention and harm reduction intervention strategies/programs. It serves as an early warning system and a tool for monitoring the evolution of drug markets in Europe. TEDI also focuses its efforts on reporting the emergence of Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) in recreational settings and monitoring their evolution throughout Europe. Over the last few years, at least one new NPS on the market was being reported every week.
The Loop shares best practices, detection fingerprints and trend information within the network.
