Expert Committee and Panel Meetings

The USP Council of Experts and its Expert Committees are responsible for developing and revising standards for medicines and foods that appear in USP’s compendia, including the United States Pharmacopeia and the National Formulary (USP–NF), which contains quality standards for drug ingredients, drug products, and dietary supplements; the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC); the Dietary Supplements Compendium (DSC); and in other related publications. They also approve USP Reference Standards specified for use in the compendia. Members of the Council of Experts and its Expert Committees develop and review monographs, General Chapters, and testing methods, and collaborate on scientific topics supporting the standards that appear in USP's compendia.
