Bylaws provide the framework within which USP operates, sets standards, and governs itself. They are considered USP’s primary governing document, second only to the organization's Articles of Incorporation, which incorporated USP in 1900. Bylaws define Convention Member Organizations’ rights and the flow of authority, and is a Member-owned document that can be revised only by Delegates. It is critical, therefore, that the USP Bylaws contain sufficient safeguards to preserve the credibility of USP's standards setting authority, and at the same time, are flexible enough to allow the organization to evolve and grow over time.
