It is legal, but there will not be many suppliers who are willing to sell it to you. But if you can find one, or you can make it yourself safely, then you may have it (in small quantitities).

This law isn't harmonised with EU law, however, I would imagine most countries will have something more or less like this. I would check with the Czech Republic's version of the Home Office first.

That is not correct.

HCN and metal cyanides (except ferrocyanide/ferricyanides) require an EPP licence. However, other compounds containing a cyanide group are not licensed.

I have plenty of (legal) acetonitrile, for instance. And even if you don't count organic cyanides (nitriles) then there are inorganic nonmetal cyanides like ammonium cyanide... and "fun" things like dicyanogen and cyanogen halides.

Cyanides are classified as T+ in CZ (T+ means highly toxic).
Read the Law 258/2000 Sb, ยง 44b. You need university degree in chem, pharmacy, medicine, vet, etc or successfully pass special examinations...
But you can perform experiments using cyanides under surveilance of someone who is competent in handling such chemicals according the law mentioned above.

i believe in EU the law is that you simply have to keep poison locked up responsibly such as in a metal locker with lock, it isnt quite clear really. could be country specific, im not 100% sure.

Truth is ever growing - but without context theres barely any such.

Does that law you mentioned specify if it applies to private individuals or research labs/companies only?

No, it's not legal for you. But if my guess about your end product is right, the legality of those steps involved shouldn't really matter to you. I think that NurdRage has a video on how to make it.

It applies both to private individuals and companies.
