About DCHQ

Established based on the article 33 of the 1988 drug law approved by the Expediency Council (EC), the Drug Control Headquarters (DCHQ) is the Iranian national focal point in charge of coordination of all efforts by the various agencies involved in the fight against production, distribution and trafficking of the illicit drugs.

DCHQ is headed by the president of the Islamic Republic of Iran. 

The president appoints the secretary-general of the DCHQ to run the Iranian focal point that is responsible for coordinating the drug control activities. In each province there is a Drug Control Council representing DCHQ. DCHQ makes policies on drug control using its high expertise and through a well-organized computerized system and announces its policies and guidelines to all relevant ministries and agencies for implementation.
