VAWD Accreditation Manufacturer
Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors® (VAWD®) is a certification for pharmaceutical wholesale distributors. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) developed VAWD in response to the FDA’s Counterfeit Drug findings. It was recommended that NABP update its rules for licensing wholesale distributors.
Prescription drugs are produced and delivered to patients through an intricate distribution path in the United States. VAWD accreditation helps prevent counterfeit drugs from entering the United States drug supply. In addition, drugs that have been contaminated, diverted, or duplicated cannot enter the market. VAWD accreditation ensures that a wholesale distribution facility operates lawfully with the required licenses and employs best practices for distributing prescription drugs from manufacturers to pharmacies and other bodies. Therefore, wholesale distributors that achieve VAWD accreditation are considered to be in compliance with state and federal laws and VAWD criteria.
VAWD is recognized by 21 states in the United States. VAWD accreditation is required in Indiana, North Dakota, and Wyoming as part of the license, while other states necessitate VAWD as a condition of license renewal for disciplinary cases. Medical centers, hospitals, insurance companies and other health care firms require their wholesale suppliers to be VAWD accreditation manufacturers. CarlsbadTech is a recognized VAWD accreditation manufacturer. As a VAWD accreditation manufacturing facility, we follow the necessary policies, procedures, documentation and other criteria required of wholesale distributors.
VAWD accreditation manufacturers are tested in the following key areas:
- Record keeping
- Returned, damaged, and outdated drugs
- Authentication and verification
- Policies and procedures
