||Regulations on the control of inhalable substances [Costa Rica]
||Reglamento sobre el control de productos inhalantes [Costa Rica] [in Spanish]|
||27 May 1996, 118th Year, No.100, p.2-3.
||This Decree (effective on publication) introduces the regulation controlling inhalable dangerous substances. It prohibits the sale or supply of such substances to minors or the mentally incompetent. All such substances have to be appropriately labelled. All those who sell, import, manufacture, store or distribute substances that can be inhaled by addicts must register with the appropriate authority (part of the Ministry of Health), and may not employ minors, mentally incompetent persons and drug addicts. Manufacturing of such products is permitted only when no substitutes exist. The use of these products is prohibited if their characteristics cause unsafe working conditions. When they are used, workplaces must satisfy certain minimum safety criteria.
