A guidance issued by FDA on January 12 makes clear that the agency does not favor some long-standing habits of pharmacy personnel related to the repackaging of drug products. Take, for example, the beyond-use date BUD for tablets taken from a manufacturer's large container and repackaged into smaller containers. The BUD of 6 months agrees with the time frame for expiration dating stated by FDA in a decades-old compliance policy guide for unit dose repackaging firms, said Dennis Tribble, an expert in pharmacy operations automation who works for medical device maker BD. But referencing the date of the original container's first opening in determining the BUD is not what pharmacists usually do when repackaging tablets or capsules, he said.

The FDA has issued guidance for face masks and respirators. In this unprecedented time, we want to make sure you know that the ACR is working hard to keep business as usual and be available and provide support to our accredited facilities. We recognize that there will be uncertainty of patient volumes, limited resources, limitations on physics support etc. Thank you for all of your hard work and providing the safest care possible to your patients. In response to increasing limitations and restrictions of physicist access to imaging facilities due to the COVID outbreak, the ACR will extend the annual medical physicist equipment survey accreditation requirement to a month window from date of last equipment evaluation. Facilities needing a longer extension and those who are unable to obtain physics testing or acceptance testing on new units are asked to contact the ACR for further guidance.

The answer to questions about food dating and food dates are inconsistent possibly due to the fact that — there are no rules! The FDA allows manufacturers to stamp their product with a date in order to help the seller determine how long to keep the product on display and to help the purchaser use the product when it is of best quality. The date is in no way intended to be a food safety date. All foods, except infant formula , have a life beyond their printed date, whatever the manufacturer has chosen to call the date.
