British Pharmacopoeia 2013

The British Pharmacopoeia 2013 was issued to the Minister of Health in accordance with Article 99 (6) of the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law of 1968, based on the recommendations of the Human Drugs Commission.

The Human Pharmacopoeia believes that the British Pharmacopoeia will contribute significantly to the overall quality control of medicines by formalizing the quality of a product, substance, or substance that must be met at any time during use. .. Publicly available and legally enforceable pharmacopoeial standards are designed to supplement and support the licensing and testing process and form part of the drug purchaser and user protection system.

The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use wants to record its appreciation for the services provided by all who have contributed to this important task.

It has  been prepared by the British Pharmacopoeia Commission, with the collaboration and  support of its Expert Advisory Groups, Panels of Experts and Working Parties and  contains almost 3400 monographs for substances, preparations and articles used in  the practice of medicine. Some of these monographs are of national origin, while  others have been reproduced from the 7th Edition of the European Pharmacopoeia.  This edition, together with its companion edition, the British Pharmacopoeia  (Veterinary) 2013, incorporates all the monographs of the 7th Edition of the European  Pharmacopoeia, as amended by Supplements 7.1 to 7.5.
