This week USP had the honor of recognizing industry stakeholders, whose donations play a critical role in helping us meet our organization’s mission—to improve global health through public standards and related programs that help ensure the quality, safety and benefit of medicines and foods. The event was held during the 2017 AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition in San Diego to thank our many partners from industry that donate draft monographs, supporting data and bulk materials to create or revise standards that provide a foundation of quality in health and healthcare.
Standards development is a rigorous process that can take years to complete and involves many stakeholders—global experts in science and health, regulators, academics and industry. By working together, USP, industry and regulators can help ensure drug quality and meet our shared goal of improving health for people around the world.
USP’s quality standards for medicines, dietary supplements, and foods are used in more than 140 countries and have impacted as many as two billion lives. We are grateful to our many partners who are a part of this important work.
