Top representatives from the EDQM, the Chinese Pharmacopoeia Commission (ChP) and major trade associations gathered recently in Strasbourg for a one-day workshop. The event :

  • introduced the content and scope of the 2015 edition of the Chinese Pharmacopoeia
  • provided the participants with a better understanding of the ChP’s working methods
  • encouraged an open exchange on pharmacopoeial issues with the audience

The EDQM also took the opportunity to present its newly released 9th Edition of the European Pharmacopoeia which comes into effect on 1st January 2017 and to engage in bilateral discussions with the ChP about opportunities to strengthen collaboration in the future.

Dr Susanne Keitel, Director of the EDQM, underlined that the EDQM is “continuously expanding its frontiers through new and close working relationships and partnerships worldwide in order to pool expertise and know-how”. Therefore, she particularly welcomed this initiative, which gave all stakeholders an opportunity “to contribute to better public health for citizens in Europe and beyond”.
