On September 23, 2019, ACA received notification that due to ongoing appeals, implementation of proposed changes to USP Chapters 795 and 797 will not occur on December 1, 2019. This is good news for compounding pharmacy: the scope of the revisions to USP Chapters 795 and 797 – and the impact that the current revisions as written would have on maintaining patients’ access to compounded medications and on the preservation of local, independent community pharmacies’ ability to continue to compound—were too great.
ACA is committed to providing compounding training that reflects the USP Chapter Standards. We are in the process of updating the curricula for our 2020 live and online courses to reflect the proposed changes as they are currently written. Once USP makes a decision to deny or remand the ongoing appeals to Chapters 795 and 797, and communicates a new implementation schedule, we will adjust our revisions and training updates accordingly on our website.
If you have any questions about ACA compounding training or the inclusion of USP Chapter Standards in our curricula, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to read the notice from USP.
