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.
