USP 800 Presents Significant Compliance Challenges for Long-Term Care Providers

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Chapter <800> hazardous drug handling rule is likely to have a profound effect on pharmacy and health care facility operations, according to an analysis by JD Supra.

The USP <800> is a set of practice and quality standards for handling hazardous drugs (HDs) developed by the USP as a part of a compendium of standards related to the compounding of drugs.

The USP rules were supposed to become an official part of the compendium on December 1, 2019, however, revisions to other chapters in the compendium of compounding standards are being appealed. The organization has stated that until such time as those appeals are resolved, USP <800> will be “informational and not compendially applicable.”
