Pharmacopeial Forum (PF) is the journal through which USP develops and revises USP–NF standards by a process of public review and comment. All changes and additions to the USP–NF are first proposed in the PF to invite public comment. PF provides guidance on how to submit comments and input. A summary of the comments received and USP's responses are also featured in the PF. PF is published once every two months, in print and online. New issues of PF are available in January, March, May, July, September, and November each year.

PF features the following content:

  • In-Process Revisions
    Proposed new USP–NF standards and revisions that USP is considering advancing to official status.
  • Pharmacopeial Previews

  • Briefings
    Scientific rationale for proposed revisions, column brand names, and the USP staff liaisons handling the proposals.
  • Harmonization
