This Stimuli article summarizes approaches that the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) intends to advance for revision of General Chapters in the 2010 to 2015 and subsequent cycles. The article represents in part the work of USP General Chapter Project Team of the Prescription- Nonprescription Stakeholder Forum and in part USP staff under the direction of the Chair of the Council of Experts. It is designed to inform and guide incoming chairs of the new USP Council of Experts in the 2010-2015 cycle. It is also intended to inform the public at large of the value and complexity of USP's General Chapters, which now number approximately 300. With this Stimuli article, USP announces plans for a General Chapter Redesign project that can incorporate some or all of the elements presented in this Stimuli article. Comments are welcome.
