Did you know that your pharmacy can get accredited as a compounding pharmacy? The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board does this accreditation.
Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB)
Established in 2007 by eight of the nation’s leading pharmacy organizations, Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) offers the most comprehensive compliance solution in the industry, with standards based on U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) guidelines. PCAB assesses pharmacies that compound medications whether in the retail, hospital, mail order, or closed door setting. This includes the combining, mixing, or altering of drug ingredients to create a medication pursuant to a prescription order for an individually identified patient. An extensive on-site survey conducted by an independent expert and annual verification ensures compliance with the non-sterile and sterile pharmacy compounding process defined by USP <795> and USP <797>.
