Introduction: There was an urgent need to up date and correct the Brazilian Nonproprietary Names (Denominações Comuns Brasileiras – DCB) list; the last one (third) was from 1996. Also, there wasn’t a published rule to elaborate the names and no official board was responsible for it. The purpose of this work is to describe the steps followed.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
