Abstract:  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has been around since it was created in 1972 through the Consumer Product Safety Act. Its purpose is to protect “against unreasonable risks of injuries associated with consumer products.” Manufactured drugs must meet the standards unless specifically exempted. Dispensing and compounding pharmacists must also meet the standards. Due to a smaller market size, compliant products to meet the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s standards to aid compounding pharmacists have been slow in coming. However, now there are numerous different products, some introduced recently, which make it easier for compounding pharmacists to comply with the standards. The new technologies are innovative and serve a great need.
