Waste Management Inspection Trends

May 2014 - Vol. 11 No. 5 - Page #48

PP&P’s Going Green survey results demonstrate the importance of preparing for inspections of pharmacy’s environmental practices given the growth in the number of inspections occurring.

Particular attention should be focused on the management of RCRA-regulated waste as most inspectors inquire about these practices. In a testament to pharmacy’s efforts, this increase in inspections has not resulted in increases of recommendations or citations. Notably, the largest facilities are also the most likely to have their pharmaceutical waste practices inspected.
