Share Your Expertise—Become a USP Volunteer

USP Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. A network of independent experts from academia, industry, regulatory, and healthcare fields, our volunteers work collaboratively to develop and revise USP’s standards to reflect current and emerging technologies, and address evolving public health needs. USP relies on the collaboration of volunteers in the USP standards-setting process. All of USP’s standards are developed and approved by our volunteers.

USP's Volunteer Awards and Recognition Program recognizes the remarkable contributions of USP volunteer bodies and individuals who work to “improve global health through public standards and related programs that help ensure the quality, safety and benefit of medicines and foods.”
