USP Postpones Chapter <800>
November 2017 - Vol. 14 No. 11 - Page #1

While certainly notable, it makes sense that USP has announced its intent to postpone the official date of General Chapter <800> Hazardous Drugs - Handling in Healthcare Settings. Per USP:

The intent of this postponement is to align the official date of General Chapter <800> with the official date of the next revision of General Chapter <797> Pharmaceutical Compounding - Sterile Preparations, to provide a unified approach to quality compounding. The next revision to General Chapter <797> is anticipated to be published in the Pharmacopeial Forum 44(5) September-October 2018 for a second round of public comment and is expected to become official on December 1, 2019. Sections of the revised <797> may have longer implementation dates that will allow time for adoption of the standard.
