A new publication designed to provide easy access to quality related standards for compounded medicines is now available from the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP).

The USP Compounding Compendium offers compounding practitioners convenient access to all compounding-related general chapters from the United States Pharmacopeia–National Formulary (USP–NF), USP’s official compendia that are enforceable under Federal law in the United States.

“USP has a deep historic connection to the practice of pharmacy, stretching back to the very beginning of our origination nearly 200 years ago when practitioners regularly prepared medicines as-needed,” noted USP Chief Executive Officer Ronald T. Piervincenzi, Ph.D. “Our founders, most of whom practiced and taught medicine and/or pharmacy, promoted quality standards as a tool to advance their profession and improve public health, and USP’s commitment to those core ideals continues today.”
