WA Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission 2021 Responsible Pharmacy ManagerPharmacy Self-Inspection WorksheetUSP <795> – Nonsterile Compounding AddendumAttention: Responsible Pharmacy Manager or Equivalent ManagerWashington law holds the responsible manager (or equivalent manager) and all pharmacists on duty responsible for ensuring pharmacy compliance with all state and federal laws governing the practice of pharmacy. Failure to complete this report within the month of March or within 30 days of becoming responsible manager (as required by WAC 246-945-005) may result in disciplinary action. The following addendum is required to be filled out and kept on file with the General Pharmacy Self-Inspection Worksheet. Do not send to the commission office.The primary objective of this report, and your self-inspection, is to provide an opportunity to identify and correct areas of non-compliance with state and federal law. This worksheet does not replace U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) <795> Pharmaceutical Compounding – Sterile Preparations. (Note: Neither the self-inspection nor a commission inspection evaluates your complete compliance with all laws and rules of the practice of pharmacy.)By answering the questions and referencing the appropriate laws/rules/CFR provided, you can determine whether you are compliant with many of the rules and regulations. If you have corrected any deficiencies, please write “corrected” and the date of correction by the appropriate question.For additional guidance on the self-inspection addendum, please see Guidance Document #61 – United States Pharmacopeia General Chapter <795> – Nonsterile Compounding – Information.Date responsible manager/change of responsible manager inspection was performed: Click or tap to enter a date.Signature of responsible pharmacy manager: Click or tap here to enter text.Questions highlighted in blue are questions that will be focused on during routine pharmacy inspections.General Rule Reference - Applies to all questions through worksheet.RCW 18.64.270(2) “Any medicinal products that are compounded for patient administration or distribution to a licensed practitioner for patient use or administration shall, at a minimum, meet the standards of the official United States pharmacopeia as it applies to nonsterile products and sterile administered products.”Compliant#Rule ReferenceNotes/Corrective ActionsYesNoN/ATraining & Training Procedures???1Are all licensed pharmacy personnel involved in compounding properly trained for the type of compounding they perform?*USP recommends annual evaluations of personnel training.*USP <795> - Categories of Compounding - “Compounders shall acquire and maintain knowledge and skills in all areas (e.g. dosage, form, patient population, and medical specialty) for which they compound.”USP <795> - Training - “All personnel involved in the compounding, evaluation, packaging, and dispensing of compounded preparations shall be properly trained for the type of compounding conducted.
