New chair of the British Pharmacopoeia Commission

UCL's Kevin Taylor to lead body to oversee pharmaceutical standards

The UK's Department of Health (DH) has named Prof Kevin Taylor as the new chair of the British Pharmacopoeia Commission (BPC).

The BPC is the non-departmental public body responsible for updating and preparing new editions of the British Pharmacopoeia, which contains a collection of standards for medicines used in the UK.

Prof Taylor will lead a board of 17 members as it looks to update the British Pharmacopoeia, as well as the veterinary edition and the list of British Approved Names of drugs.

He is head of the department of pharmaceutics at the University College of London (UCL) School of Pharmacy.

“I am pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Taylor as the new Chair of the British Pharmacopoeia Commission,” said health minister Lord Howe.

“The Commission has a crucial job in providing authoritative official standards for pharmaceutical substances and medicinal products to researchers, scientists and industry.”
