TSO (The Stationery Office)

The British Pharmacopoeia (BP) 2012 is the leading collection of standards for UK medicinal products and pharmaceutical substances. Produced by the British Pharmacopoeia Commission Secretariat of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, the BP makes an important contribution to public health by setting publicly available standards for the quality of medicines.

Now used in over 100 countries, the BP remains an essential reference for all individuals and organisations working within pharmaceutical research and development, manufacture and testing across the globe.

The print edition of the BP 2012 comprises five volumes of the British Pharmacopoeia 2012 and a single volume of the British Pharmacopoeia (Veterinary) 2012.

The British Pharmacopoeia 2012 package includes:

  • Six volume printed edition

  • Single-user licence to the CD-ROM

The BP 2012 online includes free in-year updates to harmonise with the European Pharmacopoeia. These updates will be published online as follows:

  • January 2012

  • April 2012

Clearly laid out sections include monographs which set out the mandatory standards for active substances, excipients, formulated preparations, blood-related products, immunological products, radiopharmaceutical preparations, surgical materials, herbal and complementary medicines, together with supporting General Notices, test methods, infrared spectra and supplementary information.

European Pharmacopoeia monographs are clearly distinguished and cross-referenced, while a full index ensures easy access to the current legally binding UK standards.

Online access/CD-ROM

You will receive an ID code for the BP 2012 online with your printed copy. Once you have registered using this code you will be granted a single-user licence to access the BP online. You also have the option to receive the CD-ROM which contains the full content of the BP 2012.

Access the BP across your organisation

For organisations with several employees that need simultaneous access to the vital content contained in the BP 2012, a concurrent licence is the most efficient solution. Networking information throughout your organisation in this way provides maximum access through any workstation, with considerable savings over purchasing multiple subscriptions.

Concurrent User Access

A concurrent user licence enables a designated number of employees to simultaneously access the BP 2012 Online. Once your licence is set up, employees within the organisation can simply visit from any workstation to use the BP Online.

If you plan to, or already access the BP Online from more than one workstation, you are legally bound to purchase a concurrent user licence.

The price for a concurrent user licence is based upon the number of people accessing the BP 2012 at any one time. Increasing discounts are available according to the volume of users. Consortia pricing is available on request for academic organisations.
