Approval by the national formulary committee and expert advisers
Any new alterations, additions or deletions should be carefully documented, the revised text proofread and assessed by the editorial committee and approved by the NFC. Depending on the extent of the changes, circulation of certain revised chapters to expert advisers may be necessary to check clarity and comprehensibility.
In addition to the cost of production, regular meetings, good communication and adequate funding to support these and related activities will be essential for timely review.
The final editing and production issues will be similar to those already discussed above.
It is important to remember that careful planning, a skilled editorial team, involvement of local experts, adequate resources and sufficient time will all be necessary for the successful production of the formulary.
