Doc. 152/18Comparison of European, US & Japanese Pharmacopoeia Monographs for Medicinal Gases

The publication has been reviewed to reflect the recent changes to the European Pharmacopoeia, the Japanese Pharmacopoeia  and the United States Pharmacopoeia.

The purpose of the publication is to provide a simple cross reference between the three sets of published monographs to enable a comparison of the requirements for each method and is intended for those who are involved in considering the requirements of different regional monographs.

Where the testing to a specific monograph is required, the user should refer to the original document (and all supporting documents within the relevant pharmacopoeia) to ensure that the tests are carried out correctly.

The publication is updated when changes are made to any of the Pharmacopoeia.
