Associations ask USP to extend comment deadline

In December, APC, APhA, and NCPA sent a joint letter to Brenda Jensen, chair of USP’s Compounding Expert Committee, asking that the CEC extend the comment period on its proposed USP Chapters <757> and <797> by three months, until April 30, 2022.

Many pharmacists and prescribers do not realize that their activities are considered compounding, and therefore, more education of those stakeholders is required before we can gather meaningful feedback on how these changes would impact patient care.
