With over 2000 staff representing all its 47 member States, the Council of Europe is a multicultural organisation. We all strive towards protecting human rights, democracy and the rule of law and our three core values - professionalism, integrity and respect - guide the way we work. The European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare (EDQM) is a leading organisation whose mission is to contribute to the protection of public health by promoting access to safe medicines and healthcare through the elaboration of quality standards, which are recognised as scientific benchmarks worldwide. These standards for medicines and their ingredients are compiled in the European Pharmacopoeia and are legally binding in 39 European Member States (and the European Union) but are widely used in the human and animal health sectors across the globe. The EDQM also develops guidelines and standards in the areas of blood transfusion, organ, tissue and cell transplantation and consumer health issues such as cosmetics and food contact materials. Watch our video for more information. Within the EDQM, the European Pharmacopoeia Department (EPD) is responsible for the technical and scientific Secretariat of the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) Commission and for preparing the texts of the Ph. Eur. with the relevant groups of experts and working parties. The purpose of a pharmacopoeia is to promote public health by the provision of recognised common standards for the quality of medicines and their components. The Ph. Eur. thus plays a key role in ensuring that medicines in Europe are safe and of good quality. To elaborate on the Ph. Eur., EPD works with a network of more than 800 experts with an extensive scientific background in different disciplines from all over Europe and beyond.
