Quality Matters – USP’s New Online Voice

A mission to improve the quality of food and medicines

Almost 200 years ago, 11 physicians recognized an essential need for consistency and quality regarding medicines and came together to create the United States Pharmacopeia (USP). Since then, USP's focus on quality has expanded to new areas in medicine, pharmacy, dietary supplements, and foods. From quality-related science and research, to field work and consumer tips, our hope is to address a universe of issues – all linked together by a common theme, that the quality of these items has a profound impact on our lives.
