What is regulation cited and verbiage used?

The definition section of the Pharmacy Act references the USP as being part of the "official compendium", however the provisions of the USP are not part of the Pharmacy Act's substantive sections or Board regulations.  Section 5(a)(12) of the Pharmacy Act provides that the departure from, or failure to conform to, the standards of acceptable and prevailing pharmacy practice is grossly unprofessional conduct. While the Board cannot definitely say that pharmacists will face disciplinary action for the failure to follow USP 797, the possibility does exist.
