IACP is quoted in the July 14th Pharmacy Times article, Massachusetts Institutes Stricter Compounding Law. “The International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) applauds Massachusetts’ legislature and governor for enacting a law which will strengthen oversight and inspection of compounding pharmacies, which provide vital medications for thousands of patients across the state,” David G. Miller, RPh, executive vice president and CEO, International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists, said in an e-mail to Pharmacy Times. “Massachusetts now joins many other states that have passed new regulations since the 2012 meningitis outbreak tied to the New England Compounding Center, which according to regulators was a drug manufacturer masquerading as a pharmacy. We support the law’s provisions to license nonresident compounders and to enhance the inspection program for pharmacies. Because we learned that state and federal regulators missed clear warning signs about NECC’s operations, the key to this law’s success lies in its implementation and enforcement.”
