USP General Chapter <800> Hazardous Drug – Handling in Healthcare Settings requirements set new quality-of-practice standards for handling hazardous drugs, from receipt to disposal. From facility design to environmental control, to new standard operating procedures, staff training, labeling and transport, USP <800> puts your entire compounding practice under a regulatory microscope. Not all compounding pharmacies will be willing or able to adapt – and that means more business for those who can.
