4 USP – An Overview Since 1820, nonprofit, private, independent, and self- funded Headquartered in Rockville, Maryland; 700+ employees; facilities in India, China, Switzerland, Brazil, and Ethiopia Expert volunteers are scientific decision-makers Internationally recognized and globally focused

5 USPs Statements on Standards Modern public standards should exist for all medicines and foods Public standards play a key role in ensuring quality, safety and benefit by allowing independent testing USP standards are science-based and data-driven USP is not involved in market access or regulatory approval decisions USP RS may have multiple compendial uses, and are made available to the public without restriction USP works in many ways to promote harmonization USP partners with pharmacopeias and regulatory authorities throughout the world to support their work and increase availability of public standards

6 USP and NF are Official Compendia USP is cited in law… 1848: Drug Import Act 1906: 1906 Pure Food and Drugs Act 1938: Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act –Definition of a drug –Adulteration –Misbranding –Drug product name 1994: Dietary Supplement Health Education Act 2003: Medicare Modernization Act (Model Guidelines for Medicare Formularies)

13 USP Medicines Compendium:

14 Unique Aspects of the Medicines Compendium Web-based, online only; open access to documentary standards, including general chapters Performance Based Monographs with USP-developed Reference Procedures Use of Certified Reference Materials for assays; Reference Standards for Impurities Public availability of the validation data Monographs for some medicines that have never before had public monographs MC Expert Committees meet in USP global regions MC Expert Committee adopts USP-NF general chapters including some general chapters that are planned or proposed in USP-NF but not yet official, e.g., and for elemental impurities Simplified, easy to access

15 Compendial Updates Elemental Impurities (General Chapters and ) postponement Other USP Key Issues Proposed Changes to General Notices USP Response to the Compounding Crisis in the US methylprednisolone acetate Monograph Naming Policy Publications Enhancements Searchable Errata Future: Publications 2.0

20 USPs Response to the Compounding Crisis

21 Monograph Naming Policy, May 1, nomenclature/monograph-naming-policy

22 Monograph Naming Policy, Official May 2013 Drug product monograph titles will include only the active moiety Strength also will be expressed in terms of the active moiety The names and strengths of both the active moiety and specific salt form (where applicable) are provided elsewhere on the label Included in General Chapter Nomenclature Finalized 2007; Official May 1, 2013

23 Improvement: Searchable Errata

24 Pubs 1.0 Delivery USPUSP 1.Multiple delivery platforms, but optimized for print. 2.Forum is independent. Feedback through private to liaison. 3.All customers and staff see the same thing.

25 Pubs 2.0 Delivery 1.Delivery optimized for each of multiple platforms. 2.Forum is integrated. Feedback can be private or public. 3.Different customers may see different content, dependent on subscriptions or personalization. USPUSP xm l USP Food Chemicals Codex

26 PF Publications Currently –A PF issue is published every 60 days and has a 90-day public review and comment period –Current publication schedule results in overlapping comment periods (i.e., the first 30 days and last 30 days overlap with other issues of PF) –For USP staff, there are overlapping deadlines with no room for adjustments Proposed Change –Change from six to four PF issues per year, each with its own 90-day comment period: Feb, May, Aug and Nov –Implement in 2014 at the earliest Benefits –Eliminates overlap allowing each PF to have its own uninterrupted comment period –Eases internal processes

27 Current USP-NF Book and two Supplements are published each year based on six PF issues Takes 16 to 18 months for a PF proposal to reach the official date of the original target publication (assuming no deferral) Proposed Change Online USP-NF becomes the primary publication and consider options for print publication(s) Change from six to four PF issues each year and ballot Expert Committees after each PF therefore four official updates per year Incorporate Accelerated Revisions into the four official publication Implement in 2014 at the earliest (change to PF schedule); details are evolving regarding the changes to the official publication schedule Benefits Shorten time from initial PF proposal to official date estimate is about 13 months, assuming no deferral Will eliminate looking for new official text in multiple places; needs of print customers to be considered Official USP-NF Publications
