Organisational chart

The European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare (EDQM) is a directorate of the Council of Europe.

Its origins date back to 1964, when the Convention on the Elaboration of a European Pharmacopoeia was adopted by the Council of Europe, with the vision of creating a common European Pharmacopoeia.

The creation of a technical Secretariat was foreseen in the convention, and over the years it has become a directorate, with successive name changes reflecting the new missions assigned to it.
