Abstract: Compounding pharmacists must participate in the standards set forth in the United States Pharmacopeia. Chapters <795> and <1075> within the United States Pharmacopeia have been combined and revised and new categories included. It is incumbent upon the compounder to maintain knowledge and skill in all categories of compounding that occurs in the facility. Therefore, pharmacists should acquire and study the newly revised Chapter <795>. This article discusses the categories of (1) Introduction, (2) Definitions, (3) Categories of Compounding, and (4) Responsibilities of the Compounder from the newly revised United States Pharmacopeia Chapters <795> and <1075>.
