Clean Up of General Chapter References in USP 39–NF 34

Type of Posting: Notice of Intent to Revise

Posting Date: 31–Jul–2015; updated 28–Aug–2015*

Targeted Official Date: 01–May–2016

Expert Committee: Various

In accordance with section 7.05(c) of the Rules and Procedures of the Council of Experts, this is to provide notice that USP and its Expert Committees, as applicable, intend to revise multiple monographs and General Chapters in response to revisions of General Chapters prior to the development of the current process for updating reference changes for General Chapters.

In order to identify the list of General Chapters for clean-up, a 10-year retrospective review was conducted for a full list of all revised General Chapters that were considered. In some instances the General Chapter underwent a title change, or the General Chapter was deleted entirely. References to the revised General Chapters will be updated when the monographs and General Chapters appear in USP 39–NF 34. A list of the monographs and General Chapters that will be modified can be found here. The list is broken out by each revised General Chapter on a separate worksheet. Each worksheet then lists the monographs and General Chapters with affected references.

All modifications will become official on May 1, 2016 with USP 39–NF 34.

Please also see the Compendial Notice: New Revision Markup for Reference Changes in USP–NF for details on the revision markup used to identify the reference updates.

Should you have any questions or comments, please contact Caroline Martin, Director, Publications (301-816-8521 or
