When will the chapter become official?
The chapter becomes official July 1, 2018, which is the earliest date a regulatory entity could enforce the chapter. As you all know, some states do not yet enforce USP <795> and <797>. It will be up to the individual states and their respective boards of pharmacy to determine when they will start to enforce this new standard.
