Changes to United States Pharmacopeia

9th Oct 2013

Changes to chapters 41 and 1251 of the United States Pharmacopeia

Chapters 41 and 1251 have been altered and will become obligatory for pharmaceuticals applications in the USA.  Chapter 41 relates to balances and chapter 1251 relates to the weighing on analytical balances.

I have discovered some links that appear to throw some light on this issue.  If you would like more information on this please do not hesitate to give me a call.  The first link outlines the changes and the second link is a useful video that explains the changes:
