USP–NF Compendial Notices are designed to inform stakeholders of the changing status of USP–NF monographs and general chapters, as well as other USP–NF standards-setting initiatives.
Compendial Tools are informational resources that may aid user in the application of USP standards. These tools are not official and do not affect the interpretation of any USP-developed compendium. These tools are not sufficient for determining whether an article complies with compendial requirements, and should not be used in that manner. These tools are used at the user's own discretion and risk.
USP Reference Standards are highly characterized specimens of drug substances, excipients, food ingredients, impurities, degradation products, dietary supplements, compendial reagents and performance calibrators used in conducting tests and assays for USP–NF and FCC. USP also provides authentic substances as a service to analytical, clinical pharmaceutical and research laboratories.
The Chromatographic Database is an online compilation of the chromatographic columns used to validate the chromatographic procedures in USP–NF, Pharmacopeial Forum, Revision Bulletins, and Interim Revision Announcements. It provides a cumulative listing of columns referenced in gas and liquid chromatographic methods related to revisions made to USP–NF since January 1980.
USP creates and continuously revises USP–NF standards through a unique public–private collaborative process, which involves pharmaceutical scientists in industry, academia, and government as well as other interested parties from anywhere in the world.
