USP General Chapter <800> has been approved

I’m sure that most of you are aware, but just in case, I thought I would pass this little tidbit along.

The Compounding Expert Committee announced on November 20, 2015, that USP has approved a new General Chapter USP <800> – Hazardous Drugs—Handling in Healthcare Settings. The revised chapter will be published February 1, 2016, in the first supplement to USP 39-NF 34. USP standards typically become official 6 months after publication, but the Expert Committee approved a delayed official implementation date of July 1, 2018 to prevent any undue hardship on systems that need to make major changes.

You can get more information on General Chapter <800> Hazardous Drugs—Handling in Healthcare Settings to be Published in USP 39–NF 34, First Supplement here.

Good luck, people.
