USP <797> - Compounding Sterile Preparations
The U.S. Pharmacopeia has implemented USP 797 to control the compounding and administration of pharmaceutical products in the United States. The regulations comprising USP <797> are intended to protect patients by preventing the contamination of compounded sterile preparations.
USP <800> - Hazardous Drugs – Handling in Healthcare Setting
Chapter USP 800 has also been promulgated to protect patients and pharmacy personnel from exposure to hazardous drugs as part of compounding. Hazardous drugs include categories such chemotherapy, hormones and antiviral drugs as well as others. EOC1 can provide the required USP <800> sampling for hazardous drugs.
USP <795> - Non-Sterile Pharmaceutical Compounding
Although USP <795> relates to non-sterile compounding with little specifications around environmental controls, many non-sterile compounded drugs may fall under USP <800> specifications for hazardous drug compounding. Understanding the differences in drug compounding in reference to sterile, non-sterile and hazardous compounding is important in concept and application.
