Observer Organizations

USP Observer Organizations collaborate and assist USP in its public health mission. Observer Organizations become familiar with USP activities through ongoing communications, inform USP about their actions and initiatives, which may affect USP’s standards-setting and related activities, provide input on USP standards, and facilitate collaborations with USP where appropriate. Each Observer Organization must name a representative to USP who may attend regular membership meetings, but who does not have voting rights. The Observer Organization term is for the duration of a cycle and ends at the end of each regular membership meeting.
