ESD Experts Discuss Ways for Pharmacies to Comply with Changes

They explain there are multiple opportunities to provide cost-effective engineering designs that will lead pharmacies to compliance with the updated USP 797 standards and new USP 800 standards, but pharmacies need to start now to ensure they will meet the standards by December 2019.
