Type of Posting: Notice of Intent to Revise
Posting Date: 22–Nov–2019
Targeted Official Date: 01–Aug–2021, USP–NF 2021, Second Issue
Expert Committee: General Chapters-Biological Analysis (GCBA)

In accordance with section 7.04(c) of the 2015–2020 Rules and Procedures of the Council of Experts, this is to provide notice that the General Chapters-Biological Analysis Expert Committee intends to revise General Chapter <210> Monosaccharide Analysis.

The General Chapters-Biological Analysis Expert Committee plans to remove USP KDN Reference Standard (RS) from General Chapter <210> Monosaccharide Analysis because it is an optional internal standard. Removal of the requirement to use the USP KDN RS will provide flexibility to the user in selecting a KDN reagent. 

In addition, USP plans to discontinue the reference standard, USP KDN RS, associated with the chapter. 
It is anticipated that the proposed revision will be published in Pharmacopeial Forum (PF) 46(1) [Jan.–Feb. 2020].
