This product, USP32NF27, is current from May 1, 2009 through April 30, 2010, as described below.
SIX-MONTH IMPLEMENTATION GUIDELINE
The United States PharmacopeiaNational Formulary and its Supplements become official six months after being released to the public. The USPNF, which is released on November 1 of each year, becomes official on May 1 of the following year.
This change was adopted to give users more time to bring their methods and procedures into compliance with new and revised USPNF requirements.
The table below describes the new official dates. The 2008 USP31NF26, and the Supplements and Interim Revision Announcements (IRAs) to that edition, will be official until May 1, 2009, at which time the USP32NF27 becomes official.
IRAs will continue to become official on the first day of the second month of the Pharmacopeial Forum (PF) issue in which they are published as final. For instance, IRAs published as final in the May-June PF (issue 3) will become official on June 1. This table gives the details of the IRAs that will apply to USP31NF26 and USP32NF27.
*NOTEBeginning January 1, 2007, USP ceased identifying IRAs numerically (First, Second, etc.) and instead now designates them by the date on which they are published.
Revision Bulletins published on the USP website will continue to become official immediately upon publication, unless the Revision Bulletin specifies otherwise.
Revisions that contain a specific official date shall continue to become official upon such specified date, which supercedes the general official date for the publication.
