British Approved Names (BAN) 2017

The British Approved Names 2017 is a British Pharmacopoeia publication. This new edition consolidates the drug names published in the British Approved Names 2012 with names published in its four Supplements, together with recommended International Nonproprietary Names (rINNs) adopted as new British Approved Names.
The British Approved Names (BAN) is the official dictionary of names for UK medicinal substances. British Approved Names are short, distinctive names for substances for which the systematic chemical or other scientific names are too complex for convenient general use. The BAN makes an important contribution to public health by ensuring that names selected are unique. The BAN is an essential reference for all individuals and organisations working within pharmaceutical research, manufacture and regulatory affairs.
