This volume is the first publication of its kind wherein the pharmacopoeial standards of compound Unani formulations have been scientifically described. The standards have been consciously kept modest so that the implementation by the manufacturing pharmacies becomes easily acceptable in order to maintain quality control and batch to batch uniformity. However the manufacturers should endeavour to maintain higher standards of quality than described in this volume. The appendices to this volume contain the detailed protocol used in the determination of various scientific standards as well as methods of testing. This is also supplemented with Unani definition terminologies and methods of preparation etc. This book in general is more user friendly for manufactures scientists students and teachers involved in the standardization of Unani formulations. Since this book is included in the first schedule of ?Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940 manufactures are required to follow these pharmacopoeial standards which are mandatory requirement under the Act.
