Convention Membership

USP relies on Convention Member Organizations and their Delegates to bring a breadth of unique perspectives to USP by participating in critical discussions, advancing issues that impact public health, and helping shape USP's strategic direction. Together, we help build trust in medicines and protect patient safety.

Convention Member Organizations are vital to USP's ability to sustain its pivotal role in building trust where it matters most: in the world's medicines, dietary supplements, and foods. The USP Convention Member Organizations come from across the healthcare continuum and include academic institutions, health practitioner and scientific associations, consumer organizations, manufacturer and trade associations, government bodies and associations, and nongovernmental standards-setting and conformity assessment bodies.
