Abstract:  Throughout the United States Pharmacopeia Monographs and General Chapters, reference is made to additional specific General Chapters. The purpose is to address the situation where the same test or group of tests are required for more than one substance or product monograph or General Chapter and to not repeat the details each time; instead, reference is made to the specific chapter detailing the specific test. United States Pharmacopeia Chapters <795> and <797> both refer to other General Chapters in their content; the purpose of this article is to list the chapters referred to in United States Pharmacopeia <797>, to provide the general purpose of the Chapter, and to include its major headings. Pharmacists should obtain the complete chapter and apply it to their practice as appropriate.
