Terra Universal, an environmental solutions company based in Fullerton, California, came to a point recently where it was no longer willing to sell and design clean-room setups for oncology practices unless potential clients first sat down with a consultant who could give them reliable guidance on what they needed. The problem was a set of standards from the US Pharmacopeial Convention (USP <800>) on hazardous drug management that was so complex and so potentially costly that Terra Universal did not feel confident that it would be selling its clients what they needed unless an expert thoroughly versed in the new standards was involved.

said many practices have been caught flat-footed by the advent of USP <800>. Many are scrambling to bring their facilities up to the higher level in time for adoption. The problems encountered along the way include financing, diversion of practice resources, and disruption to clinic operations.
