Project planning and proper design and implementation of compounding facilities is imperative to protection of the health and safety of those preparing and those using sensitive and hazardous pharmaceuticals. USP has updated the general chapter <797> sterile compounding and a new general chapter <800> on the practice and quality standards for handling hazardous drugs. ASHE and ASHRM have developed tools and resources to help members understand and implement the changes.
