The 167th session of the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) Commission on 23 June 2020 was the first ever to be held online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This unprecedented meeting successfully brought together over 130 members of the Ph. Eur. Commission, its 60 groups of experts and working parties and the scientific Secretariat, to ensure the continuity of the work of the Ph. Eur. was not disrupted by the pandemic.
At this session, the Commission adopted 75 texts, including 64 revised texts and 11 new texts. The list of all adopted texts will be made available on the EDQM website: Ph. Eur. Work Programme and Ph. Eur. publication schedule. They will be effective as of 1 July 2021 and will be published in Supplement 10.5 of the Ph. Eur.
