USP–NF Compendial Notices

USPNF Notices

USP–NF Compendial Notices are designed to inform stakeholders of the changing status of USP–NF monographs and general chapters and other USP–NF standards-setting initiatives. Compendial Notices include General Announcements, Notices of Intent to Revise, and Publications Corrections. This section also includes a link to the Notices of Stage 6 Harmonized Text.

Notices are generally posted at the end of the month, but can be posted at any time depending upon the urgency of the notice. USP posts Compendial Notices by general chapter (numerical order), then by monograph name (alphabetical order). The "New Notices" section includes the most recently posted Compendial Notices in chronological order.


General Announcements

General Announcements are posted on USP's website to provide USP–NF users with general information about the USP–NF, Supplements, Pharmacopeial Forum (PF), or other USP standards-setting activities.

Notices of Intent to Revise

USP provides Intent to Revise Announcements to notify users of official text that is under revision.

USP–NF Redesigned Monographs

The downloadable Excel file below lists titles of monographs appearing in an official publication (USP–NF or Supplement) in the redesigned format. Monographs are redesigned either through USP’s revision process in the Pharmacopeial Forum (PF), accelerated revision, or as part of USP’s ongoing redesign process. The list can be sorted by monograph type, Expert Committee designation, or publication vehicle in which the monograph initially appeared in the redesigned format. This list is updated with the publication of each new USP–NF and Supplement. Currently, some drug substance monographs do not include the chemical structure of the article or may incorrectly include a structure in a dosage form monograph. As part of the redesign effort, the chemical structure of the article is being deleted or added to these monographs as an editorial change.
