US Pharmacopeia (USP) is an independent, scientific nonprofit organization that has focused on building trust in the supply of safe, quality medicines since 1820. We are a public health organization that uses rigorous science and public quality standards setting to protect patient safety and improve global health.
We are committed to building public trust and confidence in drug therapies to enable people to live longer and healthier, and also work to building trust in dietary supplements and food ingredients. Currently, we are working to strengthen the global supply chain so that the medicines people rely on are available when needed and work as expected.
USP standards are in a continuous process of review and revision based upon new evidence, emerging public health concerns, and public requests for revision. Input from our volunteers, through our Council of Experts and Expert Committees and Panels, is crucial for maintaining our standards and preserving public trust.
Our Governing Bodies
The USP Convention helps guide our areas of impact – nearly 500 Member Organizations from around the world contribute valuable perspectives, experiences, and expertise from across healthcare and science. In addition to collaborating on critical healthcare and science matters, every five years, Convention Members adopt USP Resolutions and elect USP’s Board of Trustees and the Council of Experts who lead USP’s standards-setting Expert Committees.
