What are the legal requirements in the UK to buy and supply

Resolved Question:

What are the legal requirements in the UK to buy and supply Benzocaine - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzocaine

Hello,

Where will you be buying the drug from and whom will you be supplying it to?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It will be bought to mix with other chemicals and NOT illegal drugs - but the question is - is it ok to purchase and use with other products, non illegal chemicals, or are there exceptions to having it full stop?

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Thank you.

The drug is not illegal to possess and is not a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

You may buy and sell it but you would need a wholesale dealers licence from the MHRA, see here for the process involved

Can I help further?

Thank you for your reply, What are the implications if we are found with it without a licence?

You could be prosecuted.
