This presentation will introduce the basics of engineering controls in Compounding Pharmacies, focusing on the updates to USP 797 and 800 standards, which will become official on November 1, 2023. These standards impact the room pressurization monitoring and control of the critical spaces. Items discussed throughout this program will include:
- Identifying the requirements needed for Primary and Secondary Engineering Controls.
- Distinguishing between sterile, non-sterile, hazardous and non-hazardous mixing spaces.
- Selecting and laying out room pressure controls for a Compounding Pharmacy.
- Understanding the difference in airflow control types and their application in Compounding Pharmacies.
- Review implementation challenges.
