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.
