Inter-governmental Working Meeting on Pharmacy Compounding

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) convened an inter-governmental working meeting of state government officials, including officials from the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. During this meeting, participants discussed oversight of compounding pharmacies and implementation of the Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA).

The DQSA, P.L. 113-54, was signed into law on November 27, 2013, and contains provisions relating to federal and state oversight of compounded human drugs. The purpose of this meeting was to identify opportunities to better protect the public health by strengthening oversight of compounders, including through improved federal-state collaboration.
