In light of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for garbing and personal protective equipment (PPE) and alcohol-based hand sanitizer is expected to outpace available supply. During this pandemic, USP supports State Boards and other regulators using risk-based enforcement discretion related to the implementation of USP compounding standards and the compounding of alcohol-based sanitizers for consumer use.
The USP Compounding Expert Committee developed the following information resources that may be of assistance during this public health emergency:
- Compounding Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer During the COVID-19 Pandemic
- USP Response to Shortages of Garb and PPE for Sterile Compounding During the COVID-19 Pandemic
