Some Changes Come With USP 800

Compounding Supervisor

With the introduction of USP Chapter 800, pharmacy staff and administration have new responsibilities. USP 800 requires the assignment of a specific person as the compounding supervisor. The compounding supervisor is responsible for developing and implementing appropriate procedures as well as overseeing facility compliance and monitoring. This new position also ensures competency of personnel and environmental control of the compounding areas.

Separation of Hazardous Drugs

Another change is that compounding and other manipulation of hazardous drugs must be performed in a containment primary engineering control (C-PEC) within a separate room. The goal is additional personnel protection. The C-PEC’s room must be under negative pressure, externally vented, and have the appropriate number of air changes per hour.

Co-Mingling of Non-Antineoplastic Hazardous Drugs

USP 800 allows for non-antineoplastic hazardous drugs that are available in final-manufactured dosage forms and on the NIOSH list may be co-mingled with non-hazardous drugs stock if the pharmacy policy allows. Note that an additional stipulation is that the permitted co-mingled drug must not be manipulated other than counting for dispensing.
