Model Standards for Pharmacy Compounding of Non-sterile Preparations

Approval Date:

NAPRA’s suite of model standards for pharmacy compounding comprises three model standards, with one pertaining to non-hazardous sterile preparations, one to hazardous sterile preparations, and one to non-sterile preparations. 

The implementation of the model standards is under the authority of the respective provincial, territorial or Canadian Armed Forces pharmacy regulatory bodies. These bodies can establish their own process for the implementation of the standards in their jurisdictions.

It is important to note that each standard presented in the model standards document has a corresponding section in the guidance document with details concerning how the standard can be achieved.

The Guidance Document for Pharmacy Compounding of Non-sterile Preparations, published with this model standards, is available below and on our website.

The model standards effectively replace NAPRA’s Guidelines for Pharmacy Compounding (2006).
