In accordance with the Rules and Procedures of the 2010-2015 Council of Experts, USP intends to revise by Errata, multiple monographs and general chapters that were published in the Second Supplement to USP 38–NF 33. The purpose for these Errata entries will be to reinstate references to General Chapter <231> Heavy Metals and specify that General Chapter <231> will remain in effect until January 1, 2018. For some of these monographs or general chapters, additional errata associated with the corrected implementation date may be needed. A list of the monographs and general chapters published in the Second Supplement to USP 38–NF 33 that are expected to require Errata can be found here.

It is anticipated that these Errata will be published on September 25, 2015 and become official on October 1, 2015, pursuant to section 7.02 of the Rules and Procedures.
