Most European Pharmacopoeia monographs refer to the use of reference standards (samples of thoroughly characterised substances, intended for use in the tests and assays described in the European Pharmacopoeia). The availability of these standards is essential for the application of the European Pharmacopoeia. The collection of reference standards used for the implementation of the European Pharmacopoeia now consists of more than 2500 substances or mixtures derived from chemical, biological or herbal origin. Their use extends far beyond the European continent. The online database contains over 2500 reference standards and is updated daily. Search by catalogue code, name, monograph or CAS number to find the standard you need. The EDQM also provides Batch Validity Statements, Safety Data Sheets and leaflets to download.
