I saw a previous response that TJC allows facilities to have their own SOP, or you can use the manufacturer's guidelines or dating. There was also a comment that the USP has its own guidelines. Where in USP is the guideline? I have found dating pertaining to the BUD of unit dosed oral liquids, and BUD of MDV of injectibles, but not bulk bottles of oral liquids specifically. Any help?

Our facility is very interested in this as well. There is a similar thread here: http://forums.pharmacyonesource.com/t5/Pharmacy-Practice/USP-795-Batching-amp-Beyond-Use/td-p/3925

The assigned BUD can be one-year. Obviously, if the manufacturer's expiration of the medication is earlier, the shorter of the two dates must be used. USP <795> BUDs are assigned to compounded nonsterile preparations. Aqueous solutions are ones with water (distilled water or better). Hope this helps.
