Content of the European Pharmacopoeia RS catalogue

The EDQM proposes more than 3 000 Ph. Eur. RS including a wide range of highly-characterised chemical reference substances (CRS), herbal reference standards (HRS) and biological reference preparations (BRP), as well as reference spectra for the tests and assays to be carried out in accordance with the official methods prescribed in the Ph. Eur.

The Ph. Eur. RS catalogue is updated on a daily basis and gives access not only to all the Ph. Eur. RS, but also to:

  • batch validity statements (BVSs) for each reference standard;
  • Safety Data Sheets and Safety Data Statements for hazardous biologicals;
  • leaflets (downloadable PDFs).

For your convenience, the Ph. Eur. RS catalogue is published daily and can be downloaded in in PDF format and in XML format.

When stocks of a given reference standard are low, the EDQM reserves the right to limit the quantities sold to each user to ensure that as many users as possible will receive at least some of the quantities available. Restrictions on quantities are applied at the time the purchase order is received.

Following a request from many users, the quantities allowed in case of sales restrictions now appear in the online catalogue as well as in the catalogue in XML format.

 

How to place an RS order

If you wish to place an order, you can send your request to the EDQM either:

  • via the WebStore;
  • or by e-mail to orders@edqm.eu (in this case, please ensure that your order, on your company letterhead, states both the catalogue code and substance name and is attached to your e-mail).

A video has been prepared to help user ordering through the RS webstore.
