The Herbal ATC Code is part of the creation of a harmonised global nomenclature and therapeutic classification of plant substances. Using this code in pharmacovigilance systems will allow one to see better undesirable side effects.

Requests for new codes should be sent to Uppsala Monitoring Centre.

The two publications relating to Herbal ATC Code can also be ordered from the Uppsala Monitoring Centre :

  • Guidelines for Herbal ATC Classification (ISBN 91-631-2063-1)
  • Herbal ATC Index
