NABP Leads the Charge as States Tighten Ranks Around Compounding Pharmacies
Date:12/12/2012

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Supporting state board of pharmacy efforts to enforce compounding regulations, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) is implementing a four-part action plan centered around inspection of nonresident compounding pharmacies and creating an information sharing network of regulatory details on such pharmacies. Focusing on inspections of nonresident compounding pharmacies and sharing this data among boards of pharmacy nationwide was determined by NABP and its member state boards of pharmacy to be key to preventing future tragedies like the current meningitis outbreak.

Development of the NABP action plan began at a November 2012 meeting of board of pharmacy executive directors and implementation quickly began. The 30 attendees of the meeting expressed a strong commitment to correcting system failures that allowed the meningitis outbreak to occur and agreed it was necessary to move quickly to implement the necessary solutions. Also discussed during the meeting was the Iowa Board of Pharmacy's recent request for NABP to develop an inspection program for entities that are licensed by the state as nonresident pharmacies and dispensing compounded drugs in Iowa. The executive directors in attendance expressed their support of this inspection initiative, which became a cornerstone of the four-part action plan.

In the first part of its action plan, NABP shared the list of nonresident compounding pharmacies provided by the Iowa Board of Pharmacy with other NABP member boards of pharmacy and began coordinating the collection of information on these pharmacies. The boards' collaboration on this data helped NABP identify the initial pharmacies to inspect. NABP believes that the list provided by Iowa represents a significant number of nonresident pharmacies dispensing compounded drugs across the country.
