Upon publication the adoption statement is published on the USAN Web site.
Following the INN review, and if all goes well with the proposed name, is the adoption of a USAN. Per standard USAN policy, adoptions occur the last Wednesday of each month.
A letter and adoption statement formally notifies the applicant that the negotiation has been completed and a USAN assigned. A firm may begin using a USAN when it receives an adoption statement. There is no need to wait until publication, which would normally occur 60 days later.
