T.E.D.I. (Trans European Drug Information) is a European database system that collects, monitors and analyses the evolution of the various European drug scenes and reports on them on a regular basis.
All of the organisations involved in Drug Checking share their data on the T.E.D.I. database, which was originally established in conjunction with projects that worked directly with drug users (first-line projects).
The aim of this monitoring and information system is to help improve public health and intervention programs. It serves as an early warning system and a tool for monitoring the evolution of drug markets in Europe. Moreover, it has become an essential knowledgebase in the area of recreational drug use.
Besides its Drug Checking information function, TEDI project also focuses on: 1) standardising the various processes related to Drug Checking; 2) making recommendations to help improve first-line project field interventions; and 3) monitoring the evolution of new substances and new trends throughout Europe.
