The Council makes a number of recommendations including:
• A proposal for the ACMD to examine measures for restricting the availability of gamma butyrolactone (GBL) and 1, 4-butanediol.
• A request that the Association of Chief Police Officers, in consultation with the Forensic Science Service, issue further advice to ensure appropriate body samples are collected from victims as soon as possible after an alleged attack.
• A request that the Department of Health arranges for "early evidence kits", and appropriate advice on their use, to be made available in all Accident and Emergency Departments and Sexual Assault Referral Centres.
• Further advice should be offered to young people about how to minimise the risks of drug facilitated sexual assault.
