Resources for staying in the know about compounding pharmacy compliance

Compounding pharmacies must adhere to regulatory standards to protect the health and safety of patients. Whether you’re a 503A or 503B pharmacy, staying compliant can be challenging.

Compliance applies to all areas of compounding, including:

  • Standard operating procedures (SOPs)
  • Validation protocols
  • Cleaning and garbing
  • Employee and environmental monitoring
  • Compounding products
  • Packing and shipping material

The FDA frequently introduces new regulations to ensure safe compounding practices. In 2020, USP released new operational considerations in response to PPE, garb and disinfecting supply shortages caused by the pandemic. Since compliance guidelines are always evolving, it’s good to monitor announcements and updates from the different regulatory bodies.

We compiled resources from trusted industry sources to help your compounding pharmacy stay compliant with USP, FDA and State Board regulations.
