PCAB Accreditation

Pharmacy Specialties & Clinic, Inc. is a PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy

Pharmacy Specialties has earned the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board’s (PCAB®) Seal of Accreditation for meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards for sterile and non‐sterile compounding.

Our designation as a PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy is formal recognition that Pharmacy Specialties ranks among the best compounding pharmacies in the United States for compliance with quality standards. While compounding pharmacy is regulated by the state, accreditation is an even more comprehensive way to ensure a compounding pharmacy is meeting the highest quality and safety standards, giving patients and prescribers a way to select a quality pharmacy.

The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB®) is led by eight national pharmacy organizations that recognized the need for a national standards organization for compounding pharmacy. Together, these leading experts in the compounding pharmacy field developed principles, policies and standards for the practice of compounding pharmacy, as well as the PCAB Accreditation criteria and processes.

These standards focus on the quality and safety of compounded preparations, for example:

  • Only chemicals from highly reliable suppliers are used.
  • Pharmacists and technicians receive regular, specialized training.
  • Facility must meet design and other related standards to help ensure the area is clear and free of contamination.
  • Pharmacy must meet or exceed USP <795> standards for non-sterile compounding and  USP <797> standards for sterile compounding.
  • PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacies agree to adhere to the PCAB® “Principles of Compounding”

Pharmacies seeking accreditation must submit documented proof that they meet PCAB® quality standards, submit their policies and procedures for regular review, and open their doors to regular onsite inspections. Achieving accreditation is a strong statement of Pharmacy Specialties’ commitment to provide high quality compounded medications for our community and documents that we meet or exceed national quality standards.

Pharmacy Specialties is honored to be PCAB Accredited®. It confirms our commitment to providing the safest, personalized solutions that meet the medication needs of our patients – and the needs of healthcare providers who rely on us for these specialized medicines. We believe this will further strengthen the bond of trust between our pharmacy and our patients and practitioners.
