Ingredient Verification Program (IVP)

USP offers rigorous third-party verification services to help companies achieve quality management for ingredients used in the manufacture of finished drug products, dietary supplements, and food products. Companies whose ingredients meet USP’s comprehensive and stringent verification requirements, are awarded a Certificate of Standards Compliance and use of the appropriate USP Verified Mark. The Mark can be used on the bulk label of each container of USP-verified ingredients, on the certificate of analysis, and on other valuable marketing collateral.
