Emergency Rule 64B16ER12-1
With the recent nationwide fungal meningitis outbreak caused by contaminated compounded products, the Florida Board of Pharmacy adopted Emergency Rule 64B16ER12-1, Florida Administrative Code This Emergency Rule requires all Florida licensed pharmacy permit holders, including non-residents, to complete a mandatory survey to inform the Board of its compounding activities. The goal of this mandatory survey is to determine the scope of sterile and non-sterile compounding within Florida licensed pharmacies --whether physically located in or out-of-state.

Failure to timely complete the mandatory survey is grounds for disciplinary action; however the goal is not to discipline, only to obtain critical data. Your cooperation in this matter is important to the department’s public protection mission.
