One of these steps is access to the FCC Forum (www.usp.org/fcc/fccForum.html), where FCC monographs and identity standards are open for stakeholder feedback. In-person workshops on selected topics of interest are also available (www.usp.org/meetings-courses/workshops). In November 2013, USP held a workshop on food and dietary supplements adulteration and in November 2014, USP is scheduled to hold a workshop focused on food contamination.
