Be Ready for Non-Sterile Compounding Changes With USP 795 Updates
NOTICE (September 2019): After this article was published, USP postponed the official dates of the revised <795> and <797> chapters until further notice. Please see their notice here.You'll see big changes with NON-sterile compounding...due to updated USP <795> standards that go into effect on December 1, 2019.
The goal is to optimize the quality of compounded preps...by reducing issues, such as contamination and variability.
This will affect many compounds you make...from "magic mouthwash," to "butt paste," to suspensions or solutions from liquids or pills. It will even affect certain compounding "kits" (First-Omeprazole, etc).
