APC: SURVEY: Are you ready for GFI 256?

August 12, 2022

SURVEY: Are you ready for GFI 256?

In April last year, the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine released its GFI #256, “Compounding Animal Drugs from Bulk Drug Substances.” The GFI expresses the agency’s “current thinking” on the subject of compounding from bulk drug substances for animal health.

Maybe you knew this. But did you know that FDA plans to begin enforcement of the GFI on October 1, 2022? Compliance will mean that veterinary practices and compounding pharmacies will have to navigate through transformative changes in their policies, practices, and procedures.

We’re conducting a survey of compounding pharmacies to help APC understand your readiness for compliance with the GFI #256 – so that we can provide tools and training to support you in this transition and so that we can advise FDA about whether an enforcement delay is warranted.

Would you mind completing it? It should only take you about seven minutes.

Click here to take the survey. Deadline to complete it is Friday, August 26.
