The Centre was established in 1982. The Centre is situated in Oslo at the Department of Pharmacoepidemiology at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and funded by the Norwegian government.

The Centre's main activities are development and maintenance of the ATC/DDD system, including:

  • To classify drugs according to the ATC system.
  • To establish DDDs for drugs which have been assigned an ATC code.
  • To review and revise as necessary the ATC classification system and DDDs.
  • To stimulate and influence the practical use of the ATC system by co-operating with researchers in the drug utilization field.
  • To organize training courses in the ATC/DDD methodology and to lecture such courses and seminars organized by others.
  • To provide technical support to countries in setting up their national medicines classification systems and build capacity in the use of medicines consumption information
