About USP—An Overview

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) is the official public standards-setting authority for all prescription and over-the-counter medicines, dietary supplements, and other healthcare products manufactured and sold in the United States.  USP sets standards for the quality of these products and works with healthcare providers to help them reach the standards.  USP's standards are also recognized and used in more than 130 countries.  These standards have been helping to ensure good pharmaceutical care for people throughout the world for more than 185 years.

USP is an independent, science-based public health organization.  As a self-sustaining nonprofit organization, USP is funded through revenues from the sale of products and services that help to ensure good pharmaceutical care.  USP's contributions to public health are enriched by the participation and oversight of volunteers representing pharmacy, medicine, and other healthcare professions as well as academia, government, the pharmaceutical industry, health plans, and consumer organizations.

USP Mission

USP promotes the public health by developing and disseminating quality standards and information for medicines, healthcare delivery, and related products and practices.  Our standards and information help patients and practitioners maintain and improve health.

About USP Professional Education (PE)

The USP Board of Trustees at the Quinquennial Meeting of 2000 passed a resolution for education and training to support the USP-NF.  In 2007, recognizing the need to better serve our professional colleagues worldwide, USP began to incorporate Web-based programming into its education mix.  To date, USP PE courses have been taught to a growing number of professionals around the world.
