This chapter presents an overview of the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and Healthcare (EDQM). The EDQM designates a partial agreement established by the Council of Europe (CoE) Member States parties to the European Pharmacopoeia Convention, comprising four intergovernmental steering committees operating in the public health field. From an administrative point of view, the EDQM is the secretariat of the European Pharmacopoeia Commission and the intergovernmental bodies set up under the partial agreement. The European Pharmacopoeia is furthermore at the core of the EDQM activities. Hence, this chapter deals first with the European Pharmacopoeia and then with other EDQM activities, before it goes on to address institutional issues. It then seeks to evaluate the impact of the European Pharmacopeia and the EDQM, and concludes with a final assessment.
