In accordance with the requirements of section 133(1) of the Health Professions Act and section 29.1 of the Pharmacy and Drug Act, ACP Council has approved circulation of the DRAFT Standards for Pharmacy Compounding of Non-Sterile Preparations for the purpose of review and comment.
In September 2016, we facilitated preliminary consultation about the standards however, substantive changes have been made as a result of comments received nationally. Therefore, our Council has invited a second consultation prior to considering adaption, or adoption of these. The new DRAFT standards have been developed nationally in collaboration with other provincial pharmacy regulatory authorities, and with the support of the National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA).
Feedback is due by February 20, 2018, at midnight.
