PCAB Accreditation

Facts about Compounding Pharmacies and PCAB Accreditation 

What are Compounded Medications? 

Compounded medications are prescriptions that are written by a physician, veterinarian or other legally authorized prescriber and prepared for an individual patient. They are not commercially available; rather, they are prepared by a pharmacist to meet an individual’s unique needs as determined by the prescriber.

Compounded medications are necessary for a variety of reasons. Examples include:

  • When a child needs a dose smaller than the manufactured dose.
  • When a patient cannot tolerate an inactive ingredient in a manufactured medicine
  • When a doctor believes a medicine is needed for his or her patient, but a manufacturer has discontinued the medicine for economic reasons.

Compounded medications are safe and effective treatment options for patients. Prescribers customize prescriptions for patients when they believe compounded medications are that patient’s best treatment option.

Why is Accreditation Important? 

Compounding medications is an integral part of the practice of pharmacy, and with the demand of patient-specific compounded medications increasing each year, there is a need for an enhanced, profession-wide system of standards by which each compounding pharmacy can test its quality processes. While compounding pharmacy is regulated by the state, accreditation is an even more comprehensive way to ensure a compounding pharmacy is meeting the highest quality and safety standards.

Pharmacists also want to give patients and prescribers a way to select a quality pharmacy. The pharmacies seeking PCAB® Accreditation want to be able to demonstrate that they are “the best.”
