Hazardous Compounding Acknowledgement Form

Is it required for our employees who compound hazardous products to sign type of "waiver" to acknowledge the risks of handling such items?  Or is have documented required education on the topic sufficient?

Re: Hazardous Compounding Acknowledgement Form

The chapter says: "Compounding personnel of reproductive capability shall confirm in writing that they understand the risks of handling hazardous drugs."  Education and training are also requirements of USP 797 and the proposed USP 800 chapter.  I have attached a sample form that was developed by Clinical IQ for your consideration. Hope this information helps.

Re: Hazardous Compounding Acknowledgement Form

Does this form have to be resigned annually or is one at hire adequate? Jane

Re: Hazardous Compounding Acknowledgement Form

Is electonic signature allowed per USP 800?

USP 800 does not define the legality of a wet vs. electronic signature.  Based on my experience, electronic signatures are legally binding, assuming that there are adequate controls on the signature integrity.
