NEW: Compounding of Hand Sanitizer for OTC Use
The Board has received multiple inquiries regarding pharmacy compounding of hand sanitizer. To help alleviate the shortage due to COVID-19, the Board of Pharmacy will exercise its enforcement discretion and will allow pharmacies and drug outsourcers to compound alcohol-based hand sanitizers for OTC use if the pharmacy complies with the FDA’s recently released Policy for Temporary Compounding of Certain Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer Products During the Public Health Emergency
and Board rule 20 CSR 2220-2.400 Compounding Standards of Practice.
A compounding log should be maintained as required by 20 CSR 2220-2.400. The pharmacy may note “OTC Use” where the prescription number would normally be recorded on the log. Unless notified otherwise, this exception will continue for the duration of the public health emergency declared by the Secretary of Health and Human Services on January 31, 2020. Once the emergency ends, pharmacies will be required to have a patient specific prescription and comply with all applicable FDA requirements.
