USP announces Quality Demonstration Program

At a public meeting September 5, the US Pharmacopoeia announced its plan to certify supplement makers who meet specific content and purity standards, allowing them to mark their labels with a unique certification symbol. Manufacturers would be charged a fee for the service, and would be subject to regular quality audits. The program is intended to establish consistent standards for the industry and boost consumer trust in the certified products. USP says it is considering using outside contractors for the post-certification audits. The Tan Sheet; September 11, 2000.
