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 Non-Botanical Dietary Supplements Expert Committee intends to revise the Phytonadione monograph.

The purpose for the revision is to revise the chemical structure, chemical name, and the CAS number of phytonadione in the Phytonadione monograph to reflect the article obtained from both natural source and chemical synthesis.

Minor editorial changes have been made to update the monograph to the current USP style.

It is anticipated that the proposed revision will be published in Pharmacopeial Forum 43(5) [Sep–Oct. 2017] pursuant to section 7.02 of the Rules and Procedures. The comment period for this revision ends on November 30, 2017. In the absence of any adverse comments the proposed revision will be submitted to ballot for official adoption in the Second Supplement to USP 41-NF 36, which will become official on December 1, 2018.
