Compounding Accreditation Board Gets Support

JULY 01, 2004

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has announced its support for collaboration among pharmacist organizations in creating a voluntary pharmacy accreditation program for compounding. The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board was established to help enhance the quality and raise awareness about compounding.

A coalition of pharmacy-related professional, regulatory, and standards-setting organizations initiated the program. "We are excited about being a member of this new board," said Roger L. Williams, MD, executive vice president and chief executive officer at USP. "By working together, we will improve the quality of pharmacy compounding in the United States, which ultimately improves patient care throughout the nation."
