  3. For files that have a USP41-NF36 revision that were superseded by an Accelerated Revision in the November, December, and January monthly posting, the entire document is currently official as of May 1, 2018. Any earlier official date that displays in the official status banner is based on the Accelerated Revision.
  4. In the event that a “No Longer Official” version of a file displays a backwards date range (i.e., Official from 1-May-2018 to 30-Apr-2018) this version is to be considered “Never Official”.
  5. When viewing a file with a title change, two “Currently Official” versions will appear in the “Switch Version” drop down; switching between these versions in the drop down allows you to navigate between the two files.
  6. Files with August 2017 and October 2017 Accelerated Revisions were included with the USP 41-NF 36 1S online publication, per the normal Accelerated Revision publishing schedule. These files, which were technically revised via Errata or Revision Bulletin, will not receive an Accelerated Revision icon as the online system views them as part of the USP 41-NF 36 1S online publication.
  7. If a reagent title (or cross reference title) is not appearing in the navigation menu, please use the search function to find the reagent.
