Is your board of pharmacy aware of USP’s BUD proposals?

Last week APC sent a letter to every state board of pharmacy to urge them to pay attention to USP’s proposed beyond-use date changes in Chapter <795> and <797>. “Without your input,” we wrote, “It’s possible your state will find itself saddled with certain regulations that limit patient access to compounded preparations while creating considerable waste and cost containment issues for the pharmacies that compound those preparations.” You can help by mentioning the letter to your pharmacy board members and executive director and offering to serve as a resource to the board in developing their comments to USP.
