How can users and other stakeholders participate?

Public participation in the HMC process is critical to the development of USP’s herbal medicine standards. Stakeholders may participate by reviewing and providing input on both “For Development” or “For Comment” HMC monographs. Stakeholders also may provide information and candidate material for new HMC monographs and revisions to "Final Authorized" monographs. For further information on these opportunities, contact Maged Sharaf, Ph.D., Director, Herbal Medicines Compendium, at or +1 (301) 816-8318.
