The British Pharmacopoeia 2018, British pharmaceutical standards

The British Pharmacopoeia (BP) 2018 marks the Anniversary of setting quality standards for medicines and medicinal products in the UK. To celebrate this sesquicentenary year, each copy of the BP 2018 includes a complimentary, commemorative digital facsimile of the BP 1864 – the first edition. This edition also sees the introduction of a USB format which replaces the CD-ROM.

The 2018 edition includes almost 3,500 monographs which are legally enforced by the Human Medicines Regulations 2018. Where a pharmacopoeial monograph exists, medicinal products sold or supplied in the UK must comply with the relevant monograph. All monographs and requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia are also reproduced in the BP.
