"We are looking to expand our compounding production and outsourcing capabilities. What do we need to become 503B registered?" -Independent Pharmacist

The questions you must ask yourself are:

1. Are we preparing sterile compounded drugs/hazardous/non-sterile?

2. Do we wish to register as an outsourcing facility?

3. We are not a registered pharmacy but do have a pharmacist that will supervise all compounding?

4. Will our facility obtain or not obtain prescriptions for identified individual patients?



A facility that is outsourcing and classified by the FDA as "a facility at one geographical location." In 2013 a new category was created titled "outsources." It was intended to identify facilities creating human drug compounds and the need to adhere to Current Good Manufacturing Practices(CGMP). The production must be made under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist. But not a registered pharmacy.
