On January 18, 2013 Delegate Chris Jones introduced VA Bill 2312, which includes new definitions and regulation of compounding. The bill would permit the Virginia Board of Pharmacy to revoke or suspend a pharmacy permit if the Board believes the actions of the pharmacy are of imminent threat to the citizens of the state. Language also is proposed that provides additional explanation to anticipatory compounding and defines compounding activities in "inordinate quantities" over anticipated patterns of prescribing and dispensing as manufacturing.

The VA Board of Pharmacy asked for input on sterile compounding pharmacies activities and existing regulations at its December 12, 2012 meeting. No proposed language has been introduced or circulated at this time for public comment.
