The Ecstasy and Related Drugs Reporting System (EDRS) is an illicit drug monitoring system which has been conducted in all states and territories of Australia since 2003 and forms part of Drug Trends. 

The EDRS consists of annual interviews across all Australian jurisdictions with people who regularly use ecstasy and other stimulant drugs, as well as analysis and examination of indicator data sources related to illicit drugs. 

In 2019, NDARC has provided a suite of products with the most up-to-date findings from interviews conducted annually from 2000-2019.
