Maine BOP accepts APC suggestions

In November 2022, APC submitted comments to Maine Board of Pharmacy on its proposed rule in Chapter 42 regarding compounding drugs for veterinary office use.

This week, the Maine BOP met to discuss the proposed rule, and the board decided to move forward with several amendments based on APC’s comments:

1. Removal of the requirement for a signed acknowledgement from the veterinarian

2. Increasing the day supply limit from 5 days to 14 days or the smallest unit-of-use

3. Removal of some of the labeling requirements

The rule should go into effect within the next 60 to 90 days.
