Updated: 25–Jul–2014

The most recent update of General Notices occurred with the USP 37–NF 32 version, which will become official on May 1, 2014.  At the time of balloting, the Council of Experts (CoE) Executive Committee, the body responsible for approving General Notices, decided to defer the proposed section 5.60.30 so that further deliberation could occur related to the date of applicability of General Chapters <232> Elemental Impurities—Limits and <2232> Elemental Contaminants in Dietary Supplements. That deliberation has occurred (see the Elemental Impurities Key Issues, and the CoE Executive Committee has approved section 5.60.30 Elemental Impurities in USP Drug Products and Dietary Supplements, with an official date of December 1, 2015.   Links to these and previous recent versions of General Notices can be found below.
