Type of Posting: Notice of Intent to Revise 
Posting Date: 28–Dec–2020 
Targeted Official Date: 01–May–2021, Revision Bulletin 
Expert Committee: Small Molecules 4 
In accordance with the Rules and Procedures of the Council of Experts, this is to provide notice that the Small Molecules 4 Expert Committee intends to revise the Benztropine Mesylate monograph. 
Comments were received indicating that the incorrect USP RS was referenced in the version of the monograph published in USP–NF 2021 Issue 1, which is scheduled to become official on May 1, 2021. The Expert Committee proposes to revise the Benztropine Mesylate monograph to replace three references to USP Benzphetamine Related Compound A RS with references to USP Benztropine Related Compound A RS in the Assay, Organic Impurities, and USP Reference Standards <11> sections of the monograph. 

It is anticipated that the revision will be published as a Revision Bulletin on January 29, 2021 with an official date of May 1, 2021 pursuant to the Rules and Procedures.
