Therapeutic magistral form

Scope

The Therapeutic Magistral Form (TMF) is a reference book for magistral preparation. It has been drafted by the competent sub-committee of the Belgian Pharmacopoeia Commission and published by the Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products.

The preparations were selected for their therapeutic efficacy as well as their socio-economic interest, and then validated in terms of their composition, method of dosage and if necessary stability.

The Therapeutic Magistral Form, 1st edition, has been approved by the Royal Decree of 25 March 2003 (French version).

It must be present in each pharmacy in accordance with the Royal Decree of 21 January 2009 (French version) (Article 12) about instructions to pharmacists.
