The International Pharmacopoeia comprises a collection of recommended procedures for the analysis and specifications for the determination of pharmaceutical substances excipients and dosage forms that are intended to serve as source material for reference or adaptation by any WHO Member States wishing to establish pharmacopoeia requirements. They are meant to have legal status only if a national authority expressly introduces them into appropriate legislation. The policies and aims of the third edition of The International Pharmacopoeia together with general notices and methods of analysis are set out in detail in the prefaces to previous volumes. Increasingly the selection of monographs is determined by those substances included in the current WHO Model List of Essential Drugs Volumes 2 and 3 of this edition already contain monographs for the majority of substances included in the Model List and this policy will continue to be adhered to in the future.
