General Chapter <797> Revisions

The USP guidelines governing pharmaceutical compounding and sterile preparations is undergoing revision in 2018. Originally published for public comment in 2015, the Compounding Expert Committee of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has undertaken to evaluate over 8,000 comments received from thousands of stakeholders, using this input to inform the upcoming revision to <797>.

Publication of the document for a second round of comment is anticipated in Sept/Oct. 2018, with the official version expected in Dec 2019.  USP encourages stakeholders to follow the status of the chapter and sign up for the USP Healthcare Quality Standards Updates.

While at the conference, we look forward to Sunday’s presentation “USP Compounding Chapters Update and Equipment Considerations in Sterile Compounding Facilities,” and Monday’s topic: “Guiding your Customer through the Investigation and Remediation of Environmental Monitoring Excursions.”

At U.S. Micro-Solutions, we are ISO 17025 certified and provide a range of testing for pharmaceutical environments and personnel. Call us at 724-853-4047 to learn more, or read our article on USP 797 and Pharmaceutical Compounding.
