Abstract:  This article on the topic of sterile and nonsterile repackaging is based on the content of United States Pharmacopeia 35–National Formulary 30 and how the respective official chapters of the publication relate to pharmacy compounding and practice. The article differentiates between commercial repackagers and pharmacists that repackage in their pharmacy for their patients. It also discusses the standards for packaging and the beyond-use dates that should be assigned.
