This product, the USP 35–NF 30, is current from May 1, 2012 through July 31, 2012, as described below.
The United States Pharmacopeia–National Formulary and its supplements become official six months after being released to the public. The USP–NF, which is released on November 1 of each year, becomes official on May 1 of the following year. This six-month implementation timing gives users more time to bring their methods and procedures into compliance with new and revised USP–NF requirements.
The table below describes the official dates of the USP–NF and its supplements. The 2010 USP 34–NF 29, and its supplements, Interim Revision Announcements (IRAs) and Revision Bulletins to that edition, will be official until May 1, 2012, at which time the USP 35–NF 30 becomes official.
