New Compendium Offers Freely Available Testing Standards to Help Ensure the Quality of Herbal Ingredients Used in Traditional Medicines
Date:5/20/2013

ROCKVILLE, Md., May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With herbal medicines relied upon by consumers worldwide, a new online resource available from the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) will provide freely available public standards to help ensure the quality of the herbal ingredients used in these products. Today, USP proposes the first 23 ingredients to be included in the new Herbal Medicines Compendium (HMC) for comment by all interested stakeholders worldwide at hmc.usp.org. HMC will provide standards for herbal articles, but will not include standards for ingredients of animal origin, synthetic chemicals or biotechnology-derived medicines.

USP is an independent, nonprofit organization that establishes standards for the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements. USP's standards for pharmaceuticals are contained in the United States Pharmacopeia and the National Formulary
(USP–NF), which are recognized in U.S. law and used throughout the world. Through the new HMC, USP now has a forum for advancing standards for herbal ingredients used in herbal medicines worldwide. These ingredients might appear in USP–NF or in an associated compendium, the USP Dietary Supplements Compendium (DSC), but would do so as dietary supplements legally marketed in the United States. 

"USP believes that public standards are critically important to help ensure the quality of all medicines, including herbal medicines," said Roger L. Williams , M.D., chief executive officer of USP. "Given medicines' key role in maintaining health and treating disease for a majority of the world's population, the importance of public standards for all medicines, including herbal preparations, cannot be overstated.
