USP General Chapter <797> Sterile Allergen Extract
Compounding Online Module

About the Module

vials of allergens

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) is a nonprofit, nongovernmental standard-setting organization. The initial compounding guidelines came out in 2003 and requirements for USP < 797 >.

USP came out with revisions in June of 2008 with reduced requirements including removing the need for a vent hood for compounding and short storage period. In November of 2013, Congress passed legislature regulating the compounding of sterile medications as a reaction to 64 deaths. The two enacted requirements were the need to write a prescription for all sterile compounded medications and for all physicians to comply with USP 797 sterile compounding rules.

An update of USP < 797 > was released on June 1, 2019 with an anticipated date effect date of December 1, 2019.

The AAOA USP General Chapter <797> Sterile Compounding module is an online test that was created to help compounding personnel meet the personal qualifications set by USP General Chapter <797>. Personnel must demonstrate proficiency in knowledge of principles and skills for sterile compounding every 12 months. Annual personnel trainings and competency must be documented.

This module is a tool to help you check that compliance box.
