Welcome to ESCOP

25 years building a scientific consensus on herbal medicines

ESCOP -The European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy – was founded in June 1989 as an umbrella organisation representing national herbal medicine or phytotherapy associations across Europe, especially in their discussions with European medicines regulators. In particular it produces state-of-the-art reviews of the therapeutic use of leading herbal medicinal products, based on the latest evidence and on leading expertise across Europe.
