The United States Pharmacopeia announced earlier this week that the revisions to both USP Chapter 795 and USP Chapter 797 will be released on November 1, 2022. The revised standards will be published on the USP-NF website: https://www.uspnf.com. It is expected that these revisions will solidify the Chapter revisions that were initially published in June 2019 and then further revised and published in September 2021. Keep in mind that the adoption of the revised Chapter 797 will also address Chapter 800 on hazardous medication management.
An additional comment period on the revisions is not expected. An effective date has not been announced.
Courtemanche & Associates will continue to monitor for the release of the documents and post them to our website.
