USP 800 and FDA cGMP:
New Regulations On the Horizon for Compounding Pharmacies
Date held: November 20, 2015
(recording and slide deck available below)

Webinar Description:
This webinar provides an overview of the current and future regulatory landscape for pharmaceutical compounders, with a focus on how this impacts cleanroom design. The 2013 Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA) transformed the regulatory landscape by granting the FDA enforcement authority over outsourcing facilities as well as traditional compounding pharmacies, along with the implementation of Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) for non-manufacturer pharmaceutical compounding. The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has simultaneously undertaken a revision of USP 797 guidelines for sterile compounding, with the major addition of USP 800 guidelines for hazardous drug compounding. Each new set of enforceable guidelines has a separate impact on the pharmaceutical compounding industry, and many discrepancies exist between state and federal oversight.
Terra Universal’s goal is to demystify these upcoming regulatory changes to ensure that a compounding pharmacy can make informed decisions when designing its cleanroom facilities.
