Pharmacies, including pharmacies located within hospitals, and pharmacists.
7. Summary and preliminary comparison with any existing or proposed federal regulation that is intended to address the activities to be regulated by the proposed rule:

The Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act requires drugs to be prepared, packed or held under sanitary conditions.
8. Anticipated economic impact of implementing the rule (note if the rule is likely to have a significant economic impact on small businesses):
Moderate economic impact. It may have an economic impact on small businesses.
