USP <797> Compliance

April 2017 : State of Pharmacy Compounding - Vol.14 No. 4 - Page #12

Clearly, accomplishing <797> compliance is not a single act; rather, it is a continuous process that requires a strong leadership commitment and systematic monitoring. As such, most facilities recognize that their efforts must be ongoing. Key to measuring the pharmacy’s current state and establishing goals for improvement is regularly conducting a gap analysis. Those facilities with the lowest rates of compliance typically also have low compounding volumes, do not conduct regular gap analyses, and are unfamiliar with their state board’s requirements, underscoring the mantra that facilities respect what is inspected.
