pf publications
PF Publications
  • Currently
    • A PF issue is published every 60 days and has a 90-day public review and comment period
    • Current publication schedule results in overlapping comment periods (i.e., the first 30 days and last 30 days overlap with other issues of PF)
    • For USP staff, there are overlapping deadlines with no room for adjustments
  • Proposed Change
    • Change from six to four PF issues per year, each with its own 90-day comment period: Feb, May, Aug and Nov
    • Implement in 2014 at the earliest
  • Benefits
    • Eliminates overlap allowing each PF to have its own uninterrupted comment period
    • Eases internal processes
official usp nf publications
Official USP-NF Publications
  • Current
    • USP-NF Book and two Supplements are published each year based on six PF issues
    • Takes 16 to 18 months for a PF proposal to reach the official date of the original target publication (assuming no deferral)
  • Proposed Change
    • Online USP-NF becomes the primary publication and consider options for print publication(s)
    • Change from six to four PF issues each year and ballot Expert Committees after each PF therefore four official updates per year
    • Incorporate Accelerated Revisions into the four official publication
    • Implement in 2014 at the earliest (change to PF schedule); details are evolving regarding the changes to the official publication schedule
  • Benefits
    • Shorten time from initial PF proposal to official date estimate is about 13 months, assuming no deferral
    • Will eliminate looking for new official text in multiple places; needs of print customers to be considered
