Standardization of herbal formulations is essential in order to assess the quality, purity, safety and efficacy of drugs based on the amounts of their active principles. The present research work is an attempt to standardize ” Chopchiniyadi Churna” an ayurvedic polyherbal formulation used in the treatment of rheumatism, epilepsy, anthelmintic, malignant ulcers and some diseases of the central nervous system. Three marketed and one in-house formulations were used for the study. All the formulations were standardized on the basis of organoleptic characters, physical characteristics and physico-chemical properties. The set parameters were found to be sufficient to evaluate the churna and can be used as reference standards for the quality control/quality assurance purposes.

Key words: Chopchiniyadi churna (CC), Polyherbal formulation, Quality Standards.
