This edition also sees the introduction of a download format for use offline. This replaces the USB, and has the benefit of being updated three times per year to harmonise with the European Pharmacopoeia.

Updated annually, the BP is the only comprehensive collection of authoritative official standards for UK pharmaceutical substances and medicinal products.

The BP 2016 includes almost 4,000 monographs which are legally enforced by the Human Medicines Regulations 2012, and becomes legally effective on 1 January 2016. Where a pharmacopoeial monograph exists, medicinal products sold or supplied in the UK must comply with the relevant monograph. All monographs and requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia are also reproduced in the BP.
