The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board Process
The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) is a not-for-profit corporation formed and lead by eight national pharmacy organizations that recognized the need for a national standards organization for compounding pharmacy. Together, these leading organizations developed the industry principles, policies and standards for the practice of compounding pharmacy, as well as the PCAB Accreditation criteria and processes.
