Eurasian Pharmacopoeia Available

The Eurasian Economic Commission published Volume 1 of the EAEU Pharmacopoeia. This Volume contains 157 general texts and general monographs. Individual monographs are expected to be published in Volume 2 which is currently being elaborated. The EAEU Pharmacopoeia is currently available in Russian language only.

The general texts and general monographs are to some extent harmonized with international Pharmacopoeias (e.g. European Pharmacopoeia, Ph. Eur.). However, there are still some important differences which might become challenging for globally operating companies. The EAEU Pharmacopoeia will come into force on 1st of March 2021.
Marketing authorization application dossiers on medicines for human use and medicines for veterinary use shall be brought into compliance with the requirements of EAEU Pharmacopoeia on 1st January 2026 at the latest.
