Home Study Webinar: Preparing for FDA’s Compounding MOU

Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on compounded human drug products can help reduce the risk of injury to patients by improving oversight of compounding pharmacies.

Related to Section 503A of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, the MOU acts as an agreement between the state boards of pharmacy and FDA to collect information about the distribution of inordinate amounts of compounded human drugs, as well as complaints about compounders. The MOU better positions regulators to address patient safety and improve communication between FDA and boards.

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize the evolution of FDA’s data collection requirements under the MOU.
  2. Define “inordinate amounts” of compounded human drug products.
  3. Explain when boards must to report inordinate amounts to FDA as required by the MOU.
  4. Describe the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) Information Sharing Network.
  5. Discuss how the NABP Information Sharing Network can streamline the data sharing process and help boards meet data reporting obligations.
