British Pharmacopoeia 2010 Herbal and Complementary Medicines Online
- The British Pharmacopoeia Commission Secretariat, part of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)
'British Pharmacopoeia 2010 Herbal and Complementary Medicines Online' is a new online resource, which includes the monographs for Herbal and Complementary Medicines, as published in the British Pharmacopoeia 2010, within the dedicated section: 'Herbal Drugs and Herbal Drug Preparations' and 'Materials for use in the Manufacture of Homeopathic Preparations'.
With source material taken from the British Pharmacopoeia, the leading collection of standards for UK medicinal products and pharmaceutical substances, the 'Herbal and Complementary Medicines Online' will be of particular interest to those who need to be kept up-to-date with the information governed by the legislation relating to herbal and complementary medicines.
This new online publication on Herbal and Complementary medicines is being launched to facilitate wider dissemination of publicly-available standards for herbal medicines worldwide, in particular in the UK, within Europe, and also in Commonwealth countries, where British Pharmacopoeia publications are an intrinsic part of legislation on medicines.
EU legislation on Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products, which has been introduced to ensure quality and to boost consumer confidence, becomes effective in April 2011. All herbal products on the UK market must have a Marketing Authorisation or be registered under the Traditional Herbal Medicines Registration Scheme.
The new EU Directive will remove constraints which have made it difficult granting marketing authorisations of herbal substances and preparations as traditional medicinal products under the pre-existing Community legislation.
Until the introduction of the legislation, consumers could not be sure of the quality of the products they were buying; unlicensed herbal remedies sold in the UK have not had to meet set standards for safety, quality and consumer information; paradoxically, this has also put responsible companies at a commercial disadvantage. The Directive should help to reinforce the importance of patient safety with respect to the use of herbal medicines in the treatment of health conditions.
