The European Pharmacopoeia is a single reference work for the quality control of medicines in the signatory states of the Convention on its elaboration.
The official standards published within provide a legal and scientific basis for quality control during the development, production and marketing processes.
They concern the qualitative and quantitative composition and the tests to be carried out on medicines, on the raw materials used in production of medicines and on the intermediates of synthesis. All producers of medicines and/or substances for pharmaceutical use must therefore apply these quality standards in order to market their products in the signatory states of the Convention.
