matic sanction to the Resolutions adopted by the Conference which assembled at Brussels in the month of September 1902, with a view to the unification of the Pharmacopæial formulas for potent drugs.

At the moment of affixing their signatures to the said Act, the Representatives of Germany, Austria-Hungary, the United States of America, Great Britain, Portugal, and Sweden have formulated, in the name of their respective Governments, the following reservations:

J. RESERVATIONS FORMULATED BY THE GERMAN GOVERNMENT._ The Imperial Government does not impose upon itself, by the fact of signing the present Agreement, any other obligation barond that of exercising its influence, when the proper time arrives, that is to say, at the date of the next revision of the German Pharmacopeia, in order to bring the latter into conformity with the present Agreement.

At the same time the Imperial Government reserves to itself the right of introducing into the stipulations of this Agreement any modifications which, on the one hand, appear necessary in order to take account of the progress of medical and pharmaceutical science, and which, on the other hand, may be desirable from the point of view of the unification of the German Pharmacopæia.

II. RESERVATIONS FORMULATED BY THE AUSTRIAN GOVERNMENT.So far as regards opii pulvis the Austrian Government reserves to itself the right of permitting the sale of the pure drug containing, as a maximum, 12 per cent. of morphine.

III. RESERVATIONS FORMULATED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.—The Government of the United States does not assume, by the fact of signing the present Agreement, any other obligation beyond that of exercising its influence in order that, at the next revision of the American Pharmacopeia, the latter may be brought into harmony with the said Agreement.

IV. RESERVATIONS FORMULATED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF His BriTANNIC MAJESTY.—The Government of His Britannic Majesty declares that it reserves the right of introducing into the stipulations of the present Agreement such modifications in detail as the progress of medical and pharmaceutical science may render necessary from time to time.

The Government of His Britannic Majesty further declares that it reserves the right of adhering to the Agreement, and of denouncing it, with reference to each of the British Colonies or Possessions, separately.

V. RESERVATIONS FORMULATED BY THE PORTUGUESE GOVERNMENT. The Resolutions of the International Conference held at Brussels for the unification of the Pharmacopoeial formulas of potent drugs shall be applied in Portugal. Nevertheless, the vernacular Portuguese name of each substance shall appear in the text of the Pharmacopeia, and shall be adopted as the primary denomination; one of the Latin names inscribed in the Table contained in Article 1 of the present Agreement shall be used as the first synonymous denomination.

THE

a The Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg has declared that Luxemburg, which by arrangement with Germany has adopted the German Pharmacopæia, has signed the Agreement under the Reservations formulated by the German Government.

VI. RESERVATIONS FORMULATED BY THE SWEDISH GOVERNMENT.1. The denominations of the potent drugs enumerated in the present Agreement, differing entirely from those employed in the Swedish Pharmacopæia, shall not be inscribed in the text itself of that Pharmacopoeia, but shall appear in a special supplement to the new issue of the Pharmacopæia which is in course of preparation;

2. The denomination of the medicinal wine vinum glycyrrhizae opiatum shall be maintained in Sweden;

3. As the preparation of tinctures of drugs by percolation involves an increase in the price of these products, this method seems not altogether suitable for employment in a general manner.

At the moment of proceeding to the signature of the present procèsverbal the Undersigned declare themselves in accord in recognizing that the right referred to in the first reservation formulated by the Government of His Britannic Majesty is acquired by all the Signatory Governments.

It is understood that the Contracting Parties which exercise this right will inform each other, reciprocally, through the intermediary of the Belgian Government, of any modifications introduced into the stipulations of the Agreement.

In witness whereof the Undersigned have drawn up the present procès-verbal.

Done at Brussels, the 29th November, 1906, in a single instrument,
of which an exact copy shall be delivered to each of the Signatory
Governments.
