Publications of the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare (EDQM) (2014)
The EDQM, a directorate of the Council of Europe, is a leading organisation that protects public health by enabling the development, supporting the implementation and monitoring the application of quality standards for safe medicines and their safe use. In particular, it is responsible for the European Pharmacopoeia, which provides common standards to control the quality of medicines and of substances used in the manufacture of medicines (human and veterinary use). The EDQM also develops guidance and standards related to combatting counterfeit medical products, to pharmaceuticals and pharmaceutical care, blood transfusion, organ transplantation and consumer health issues.
The EDQM’s publications are available through its own website.
