DD 07 Discussion document on Diversion from Intended use (DFIU). DD 07 was developed by the NAPPO Expert Group on DFIU to provide information to stakeholders ahead of developing a draft specification for an RSPM on the subject.  The draft specification went to country consultation in April 2017 and the development of the RSPM on DFIU was not supported by NAPPO stakeholders.
