Abstract:  One of the most exciting new developments in the world of compounding is the opportunity for a pharmacy to obtain accreditation. Other healthcare organizations have had that opportunity for years. Compounding pharmacies now have an external standard-setting entity to which they can apply for accreditation—the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board—and they are encouraged to do so. The pharmacy staff may have extra anxiety the few days before a survey is conducted by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board, but, by following the pre-survey tips included in this article, compounding pharmacists and their staff can channel the extra energy into productive activities that will help in achieving accreditation.
