Are you ready for USP <800> and compliant with new standards for safe handling of hazardous drugs?

We know you have a lot to focus on before USP Chapter <800> takes effect in December 2019. Letco has implemented additional steps to help you comply with regulatory standards and best practices for chemicals found on the NIOSH hazardous drug list.

Let us help you stay USP <800> compliant when you order chemicals found on the NIOSH list

When you order chemicals from Letco that are found on the most recent NIOSH list, tables 1-3, you can have peace of mind because we've taken extra steps to help you keep these items separate from other products:

  1. Chemicals that fall under USP <800> guidelines will be placed in a sealed, impermeable plastic bag inside the box that contains your order or will be provided in a redundant container closer system.
  2. A purple "NIOSH list items inside" sticker will be on the outside of your shipment.
  3. We'll include a packing slip available on the outside of the shipping unit as well, so you know what's inside before you open it.
What should you do with a delivery with a purple NIOSH sticker?
