General Chapter <7> Labeling

USP recently discovered that the correct version of General Chapter <7> Labeling was not published on November 1, 2018 in USP 42–NF 37.  The version published on that date did not contain all revisions approved by the Expert Committee.  

The corrected version includes the following revisions:

  • Removal of “USP” from drug product examples in the chapter (e.g. Epinephrine Injection, USP)
  • Addition of this sentence to the Expiration Date and Beyond Use Date section: 
    If an expiration date is stated only in terms of the month and the year, then the intended expiration date is the last day of the stated month.
  • Addition of examples regarding dose expressions of strength
  • Removal of erroneously duplicated language in the chapter

The correct version of General Chapter <7> Labeling can be accessed in the USP-NF Online on April 26, 2019 and will appear in USP 43-NF 38 (print product and flash drive) on November 1, 2019.  The official date of the correct version is May 1, 2019.  

USP apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.
