If you compound non-sterile preparations at your pharmacy, you’ll want to take a moment to review the facility and equipment requirements outlined in NAPRA’s Draft Standards for Pharmacy Compounding of Non-Sterile Preparations. In particular, there are specific requirements for heating, ventilation and air conditioning; lighting; water supply; and work surfaces that you should be aware of. Depending on whether you prepare compounds that are categorized in Level A, Level B or Level C, renovations to your dispensary may be required if these standards are approved.
ACP invites you to review the draft standards – developed in collaboration with other provincial pharmacy regulatory authorities through the support of NAPRA – and provide your feedback by November 25, 2016. Your comments will inform and support ACP’s response to the concurrent national consultation.
To begin, please visit the consultation page on ACP’s website and follow the instructions provided.
