Anthroposophic Pharmaceutical Codex (APC) Standing Orders

The IAAP board is responsible for the contents and the publication of the APC. The IAAP board appoints a responsible project manager. The project manager asks 2-6 experts to join the APC commitee. The APC commitee may ask the advise from any experts. The IAAP board confirms the project manager every 3 years.

The APC commitee submits its recommendations to the IAAP board. The IAAP board adopts the recommendations or requests the commitee to review its proposals. Ideally these proposals should be the unanimous decision of the APC commitee. If no unanimous recommendation is given by the commitee, the issue is passed on to the IAAP board for final decision.

The APC commitee meets at least once a year. 

If the text of the APC will be amended, this will require the agreement of the members of the APC committee. 4 members should be present at least. Their decisions should be unanimous.
