4. Quality control - international reference materials
The reports of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Chemical Reference Substances for 1999 and 2000 were presented to the Committee.
The Committee noted that the prices of reference substances had not changed for the past 4 years, and that there would be a small increase in price in the near future. It was also noted that only substances that were related to the WHO Model List of Essential Drugs were supplied as reference substances.
The Committee adopted the reports and expressed its appreciation to the WHO Collaborating Centre for Chemical Reference Substances for its work.
