The European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) is a single reference work for the quality control of medicines. The official standards published within provide a scientific basis for quality control during the entire life cycle of a product.
These standards are legally binding – as laid down in the Council of Europe’s Convention on the elaboration of a European Pharmacopoeia and in EU and national pharmaceutical legislation. Ph. Eur. quality standards become mandatory on the same date in all signatory member states of the Convention.
