Welcome to ESCOP

Over 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 societies across Europe and to determine its role in discussions with European medicines regulators. In particular it produces reviews of the therapeutic use of leading herbal medicinal products or herbal drug preparations based on scientific evidence and on leading expertise across Europe.


ESCOP has agreed that future production will be in the form of individual monographs available for instant  download with Adobe pdf.

In this form they will be able to be updated to take account of the rapidly increasing amount of new scientific information. It will also allow users to choose only those monographs that interest them.
