Abstract:  On July 1, 2018, United States Pharmacopeia <800> takes effect in those states that adopt it, and the discussion within this article may be applicable to those states that develop their own standards. United States Pharmacopeia <800> changes requirements for storage and compounding of hazardous drugs. The new requirements have important implications for air management and ventilation in some pharmacies. This article discusses how United States Pharmacopeia <800> compares to United States Pharmacopeia <797>, how the changes impact room ventilation and pressurization requirements, and how high-performance airflow control systems that ensure compliance and safety are impacted.
