GMP: USP publishes First Ten Quality Standards in New Medicines Compendium

On November 28, 2011 the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) published the first ten standards for the USP Medicines Compendium (MC). The MC is a free, online source of public standards that help ensure the quality of chemical and biological medicines. As a scientific, nonprofit public health organization that develops standards for the quality of medicines, USP announced the creation of the MC in June of this year.
