Model Standards for Pharmacy Compounding of Non-hazardous 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 first two model standards related to sterile preparations have been released, with the third model standard on non-sterile preparations coming soon.


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