Hospitals and pharmacies “behind the eight ball” for USP <800>?

The December 1, 2019 deadline to comply with USP <800> is coming up fast. Hospitals and pharmacies have only about 270 days left to fulfill the requirements.


Hospitals and pharmacies “behind the eight ball” for USP <800>?According to a recent article in Pharmacy Practice News, Time Running out on USP <800>? [This article requires free registration to access], consultants are reporting widespread backlogs and delays in USP <800> compliance preparation. The article by Karen Blum quotes Visante Senior VP Greg Burger, who says he is, “seeing product delays and equipment delays of up to 13 to 14 weeks . . .”

Upgrades to room pressure and HVAC systems pose major obstacles to USP <800> compliance and can be the most expensive changes to make. However, these changes can boost long-term performance and cost-effectiveness. TSI Critical Environments Product Marketing Manager, and industry expert, Dave Ruhland said, “Done properly, USP <800> upgrades can improve efficiency, maintenance and training time, and contamination control. For example, low-pressure drop HVAC components reduce energy consumption. And, a room pressure controller that doesn’t drift, like PresSura™ RPC30 Room Pressure Controller, is a significant maintenance time-saver.”

The December 1, 2019 deadline to comply is coming up fast. Hospitals and pharmacies have only about 270 days left to fulfill the requirements.
