The standards of United States Pharmacopeia Chapter <795> require that a pharmacy maintain records on a compounded preparation, including the formulation record, the compounding record, and a Material Safety Data Sheets file. The American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists’ guidelines require that hospital pharmacy departments maintain at least four sets of records in the compounding area: (1) compounding formulas and procedures, (2) compounding logs of all compounded preparations, including batch records and sample batch labels, (3) equipment maintenance records, and (4) a record of ingredients purchased, including certificates of analysis and Material Safety Data Sheets. Hospital compounding records may be inspected by any of several outside organizations, including state boards
