Standard Terms database

The Standard Terms database contains terms and definitions to describe pharmaceutical dose forms, routes and methods of administration, containers, closures, administration devices and units of presentation. It contains agreed combinations of terms, for example to describe where two or more items are packaged together, or where a pharmaceutical dose form and a container are described using a single term. It also contains patientfriendly terms, which are generally shorter terms that, where justified and authorised by the competent authority, may be used on certain labels where space is limited.

The lists of Standard Terms were initially drawn up by the European Pharmacopoeia Commission further to the request of the EU Commission for use in marketing authorisation applications (MAAs), summaries of product characteristics (SmPCs), labelling and electronic communications. They are currently provided in 33 languages from around the world including Slovak translations.
