China-Focused USP Committee to Develop Excipient Standards

Posted 29 November 2011 | By

The US Pharmacopeia (USP) is creating a China-focused East Asia expert committee to develop quality standards for excipients.  In June, the USP released details regarding its plans to create a free, online collection of voluntary public standards, called the Medicines Compendium (MC).  Development of these first ten standards was shaped by comments from USP staff and the MC South Asia expert committee.  USP chose to create its first MC-focused body in South Asia due to India's central role in exporting medicines.  The next committee is forming in East Asia and will be composed of Chinese scientists.  Initially, the committee will focus on developing quality standards for excipients.
