ATC code A12 Mineral supplements is a therapeutic subgroup of the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System, a system of alphanumeric codes developed by the WHO for the classification of drugs and other medical products. Subgroup A12 is part of the anatomical group A Alimentary tract and metabolism.[1]

ATC codes
A Alimentary tract and metabolism
A01 Stomatological preparations
A02 Drugs for acid related disorders
A03 Drugs for functional gastrointestinal disorders
A04 Antiemetics and antinauseants
A05 Bile and liver therapy
A06 Drugs for constipation
A07 Antidiarrheals, intestinal anti-inflammatory/anti-infective agents
A08 Antiobesity preparations, excluding diet products
A09 Digestives, including enzymes
A10 Drugs used in diabetes
A11 Vitamins
A12 Mineral supplements
A13 Tonics
A14 Anabolic agents for systemic use
A15 Appetite stimulants
A16 Other alimentary tract and metabolism products

Codes for veterinary use (ATCvet codes) can be created by placing the letter Q in front of the human ATC code: for example, QA12.[2] ATCvet codes without corresponding human ATC codes are cited with the leading Q in the following list.

National issues of the ATC classification may include additional codes not present in this list, which follows the WHO version.
