What’s New With USP General Chapters <795> and <797>?

Home Study Webinar

$20 Activity Fee – available through June 29, 2026.

Revised United States Pharmacopeia (USP) General Chapters <795> and <797> were published on November 1, 2022, and will become “official” on November 1, 2023, meaning this is the date that compounders are expected to meet these standards. USP staff and a member of USP’s Compounding Expert Committee will provide attendees with details on what was revised in each chapter and the implications for compounders and regulators. As USP relies on regulatory bodies, such as the boards of pharmacy, to enforce these standards, this session will educate boards about what is necessary to prepare for the official date.

This home study webinar is a recording of the live activity that was held on May 11, 2023, and was sponsored by Walgreens.
