German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Medical: Pharmaceuticals
German term or phrase: BdV
A standard operating procedure (SOP) of the Spanish division of a German pharmaceutical company has a number of terms that have not been translated from German. The subject field is drug manufacture.

Possible full terms of the abbreviation are given above.

I'm having trouble with "Método analítico BdV". which is equivalent to "Analytical Method ???"

Thanks for any suggestions

Bundesverband Deutscher Vertriebsfirmen


Explanation:
Could be... but I have no idea if this fits the context.

In any case, "Bund der Vertriebenen" seems unlikely in the extreme.

Yes, my suggestion would be BDV, so it doesn't really fit.

Explanation:
See http://www.rki.de/nn_197448/DE/Content/Forsch/Einstellung__P... - is your pharma co. active in this field by any chance?

"Bund der Versicherten" and "Bund der Vertriebenen" do not make sense at all here.
