State-level compounding resources
APC’s Stateside Coalition
Join our coalition of compounders who’ve volunteered to be APC’s eyes and ears and voice at their state’s board of pharmacy meetings. We’re working to have coverage in all 50 states, with at least three volunteers in each state to share the duties and assure consistent coverage of meetings. when we know what’s going on in your state, we can prepare you with information and talking points to effectively represent your profession.
Interested? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bill and reg tracking (members only)

State-by-state issue compilations (members only)
For APC members only, APC provides two compilations of state legislation or regulation related to compounding. Both were created in collaboration with the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations and funded by a generous grant from the IACP Foundation.
Because these are members-only resources, you’ll need your APC log-in and password to access them.
- Compilation of State-Adopted USP 795, 797, and 800 Rules (members only)
- Compounding for Office Use and Veterinary Office Use State-by-State Resource (members only)
Sales-tax permits and nonprescription drugs
Do you still have to file sales-tax permits in each state for nonprescription drugs or supplements?
The folks at TaxJar have looked into this question and compiled a state-by-state list.
And here are two additional resources worth checking out:
- TaxJar’s listing of states where dietary supplements are tax exempt or taxed at a lower rate
- The Federation of Tax Administration’s chart on state sales tax rates and food and drug exemptions (PDF)
State-by-state e-prescribing trackers
Here are two organizations’ tracking resources on state laws and regulation on e-prescribing. Both give the same info, just the interfaces are different.
