Dear all,

I was wondering where I could get a downloadable list of drugs and their ATC code (Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System)?

I checked DrugBank, and while they have a website dedicated to ATC codes (, there appears to be no downloadble list associated with the ATC codes. Also, I could not find an up-to-date list at the WHO Collaborating Centre for Drug Statistics Methodology, which I thought surprising.

Does anyone know where I could get such list from? I would like a list of all drugs, might they be approved or withdrawn.

Many thanks for all your suggestions! Leanna

The European Commission has a list of all human drugs by ATC code and a list for veterinary products. I don't think there's a convenient download but if you expand the whole tree and save the page, you should be able to parse the resulting HTML/XML.

Thanks a lot! I found another list only for those who can read and understand German language.

I haven't learnt German. Does anyone have the English translation of this list? If yes, please tell me.

Save that file to you local desktop. Go to Choose Documents option next to text and upload your pdf file. Get your translation.
