Help Develop New USP Reference Standards

USP Reference Standards help to ensure the identity, strength, quality and purity of medicines, supplements, and food, as well as their ingredients. They are closely tied to our documentary standards (monographs and general chapters) and are essential for quantitative and qualitative evaluations in compendial procedures. Your contributions in the form of bulk materials or testing services help to ensure standards meet quality expectations.

The Benefits of Partnering

When you supply bulk materials or provide testing services you:

  • Help ensure the continuous availability of quality products
  • Support the FDA’s efforts to ensure the quality of medicines, supplements, and food ingredients
