Why Does NABP® Accreditation Matter?

The Safety of Your Drugs is at Stake

The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) introduced strict standards for wholesale distributors to combat the rise of counterfeit drugs. Moreover, to get NABP® Drug Distributor Accreditation, distributors must complete a compliance review of their operating policies. Furthermore, procedures, licensure verification, a detailed survey of their facilities, and screening through ‘National Association Of Boards Of Pharmacy®’ Clearinghouse.

Four states (Indiana, Iowa, North Dakota, and Wyoming) already require NABP® Drug Distributor Accreditation for their state license to distribute drugs, with more to follow. Masters goes a step further than we’re required and offers pedigree tracing on all our products so that you can track your products from the manufacturer to your shelves. Trace your pedigrees here.
