USP and EPA compliance dates are quickly approaching that will affect LTC and community pharmacy business. On Dec. 1, 2019, the USP General Chapter <800> will become official.

On Aug. 21, 2019, the EPA final rule governing hazardous waste pharmaceuticals goes into effect. The rule will require special considerations from pharmacists and pharmacy operators.
