USP has finalized the Chapter 797 standards for sterile compounding, including standards specifically for physician in-office compounding of allergen extracts in allergy practices. The purpose of the standards is to ensure safe treatment of an allergy clinic's patients.
The Compounding Corner has been established to prepare physicians, practice managers, and clinic staff at allergy practices to achieve and maintain compliance ahead of the updated implementation date. Ensure your practice is ready by browsing our resources and working through our training module below.
