Sterile Compounding, USP <800>, and Pending California Board of Pharmacy Hazardous Drug Regulations

The California Board of Pharmacy (BOP) has been working on updated sterile compounding regulations for several years.  CPhA, through its Academy of Compounding Pharmacists and allied compounding partner organizations has been heavily involved in advocating for compounding pharmacists throughout this regulatory process.
Recently there have been a number of questions regarding the status of the sterile compounding regulations and specifically, USP <800> requirements. We are providing this information for further clarification.   
If you have any questions, please contact Megan Maddox at mmaddox@cpha.com or 916-779-4546.
If you are not a member of CPhA and would like to receive future updates on this issue as well as the many other important pharmacy related matters that we advocate for on our member's behalf, please join here.
