The USP–NF is available as a Spanish Edition for Spanish-speaking pharmaceutical scientists and professionals. USP has used the most rigorous translation and quality control to develop the USP–NF Spanish Edition. The translation process was guided and directed by a special advisory group of volunteer scientific experts from many Spanish-speaking countries. The translation was thoroughly checked by bilingual (English/Spanish) USP staff scientists. USP–NF standards are enforceable by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for medicines manufactured and marketed in the United States.

The Translation Management System for the Spanish Edition of the United States Pharmacopeia—National Formulary (USP–NF) has been certified to ISO 17100:2015 to provide the translation of USP–NF into Spanish as of September 7, 2016. This certification is applicable starting with the Second Supplement to 39th edition of the USP and the 34th edition of the NF. With this certification USP reinforces its commitment to USP–NF users with products in line with best industry practices.
