About USP 797:

USP 797 is a far-reaching regulation that governs a wide range of pharmacy policies and procedures. It is designed both to cut down on infections transmitted to patients through pharmaceutical products and to better protect staff working in pharmacies in the course of their exposure to pharmaceuticals. Issued by U.S. Pharmacopoeia (USP), the regulation governs any pharmacy that prepares “compounded sterile preparations” (CSPs). Many pharmacies fit this description. Moreover, many large hospitals have several pharmacies–a main one and several satellite pharmacies–that will be affected. A good source of information about USP 797 is the website, which includes commonly asked USP 797 questions and answers by USP 797 industry consultants.
