Interim Revision Announcements (IRAs)

IRAs are published in Pharmacopeial Forum (PF) as proposed IRAs. After a 90-day notice and comment period and approval by the relevant USP Expert Committee, IRAs are posted as official text in this location of the USP website, and are incorporated into the next available official publication (USP–NF or Supplement). Official IRAs are no longer published in PF. The PF posting dates, comment deadlines and IRA posting and official dates are outlined in the chart below.
