    1,3-dimethylamylamine or 4-methylhexane-2-amine (DMAA)
    1,3-dimethylamylamine or 4-methylhexane-2-amine (DMAA) interim decision

    Scheduling proposal

    The medicines scheduling delegate initiated a proposal to include of 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA) in Schedule 9 of the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (SUSMP). This was in response to New Zealand's temporary Class Drug Notice of 8 March 2012 advising that DMAA would be classified as a temporary class drug (equivalent to Schedule 9). New Zealand's temporary prohibition of DMAA came into effect on 9 April 2012.
    Scheduling status

    DMAA is not specifically scheduled in Australia.
    Pre-meeting submissions

    Six pre-meeting submissions were received. One submission supported the proposed prohibition, noting that DMAA is addictive. The other five submissions did not support the prohibition, indicating that DMAA is safe, effective and has no negative health effects. One submission also suggested that DMAA be regulated rather prohibited.
    The redacted public submissions are available at Public submissions on DMAA referred to ACMS#6 (July 2012).
    Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling (ACMS) discussion

    The Committee considered the referral from the medicines scheduling delegate to include 1,3-dimethylamine or 4-methylhexane-2-amine (DMAA) in Schedule 9 of the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons.
    Members deliberated over the proposed scheduling of DMAA and whether it should be included in Schedule 4, Schedule 9 or Appendix C. Members noted that:

    • There is inadequate evidence to suggest DMAA's toxicological and pharmacological properties warrant a Schedule 9 listing.
    • DMAA is not listed in either Schedule IV to the United Nations Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961 or in Schedule 1 to the United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances, 1971.
    • There is a lack of supporting evidence to reach the conclusion that DMAA needs the same level of control as amphetamine.
    • DMAA's toxicological properties meet the Appendix C scheduling criteria.

    Members agreed that DMAA should be included in Appendix C for the following reasons:

    • DMAA has no current accepted therapeutic use.
    • DMAA has a stimulant effect which can induce a psychoactive effect.
    • DMAA is being actively promoted and used as a party drug as well as a sports supplement.
    • There is no real evidence of dependence on DMAA.
    • There are a number of significant adverse events including cardiac, nervous and psychiatric disorders that have been reported with use of DMAA including cerebral haemorrhage and heart attacks.
    • The potential for misuse and abuse is high.

    Delegate's consideration

    The delegate considered the following in regards to this proposal:

    • New Zealand's temporary Class Notice;
    • International scheduling decisions, including the United States FDA, Canada and United Kingdom;
    • public submissions received;
    • ACMS advice;
    • section 52E of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989;
    • scheduling factors1;
    • other relevant information.

    1 Scheduling Policy Framework for Medicines and Chemicals
    Delegate's interim decision

    The medicines scheduling delegate has made an interim decision to include 1,3-dimethylamylamine in Schedule 9 of the SUSMP. The delegate has also agreed to the inclusion of a cross reference to the index from DMAA to 1,3-dimethylamylamine and 4-methylhexane-2-amine.

    The proposed implementation date for this decision is 1 August 2012.

    The delegate decided that the relevant matters under section 52E(1) of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 include (a) risks and benefits of the use of a substance, (b) the purposes for which a substance is to be used and the extent of use of a substance, (c) the toxicity of a substance, and (e) the potential for abuse of a substance.
    In response to safety concerns surrounding the abuse of DMAA and following advice from the ACMS and public consultation, the delegate has made an interim decision to include DMAA in Schedule 9 of the SUSMP. The decision to introduce broader controls on DMAA included the following reasons:

    • there are no current approved therapeutic uses for DMAA;
    • there are no benefits but there are significant risks;
    • there are risks due to DMAA's toxicity;
    • DMAA presents a high risk of abuse, misuse and illicit use;
    • reports of adverse events including high blood pressure, psychiatric disorders, cerebral haemorrhage and stroke;
    • an absence of studies demonstrating the long-term safety of DMAA; and
    • the wide variability in the potency of the different doses of DMAA.

    I have more trust in the TGA website over BN, furthermore the DMAA containing products are still being sold as we speak have alook at some of the retail stores that are online.

    The official date is the 1st of August if you do not believe me then pick up the phone and call the TGA in Canberra if you want confirmation !!!

    I think they posted notice only that is was forthcoming and were still waiting for a date.. They were still selling products with it.. It sounds like this Aug 1 day is when those sales will stop.

    guess you'll just have to go for more harder drugs which will be a lot easier to get lol

    cracks me up , they ban it because of the effects etc , but more hardline drugs that screw you up more and screw up the family and community are much easier to get hold of , can score quicker then what it takes to get an ambulance or get a taxi
