NABP Supports White House's Commitment to End Illegal Internet Drug Sales
Date:3/19/2008

is doing its part to combat those Internet drug distributors seeking to profit from addiction and abuse. Since 1999, NABP has maintained the Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites(TM), or VIPPS(R), program, which accredits online pharmacies that are licensed in good standing by state boards of pharmacy, meet a rigorous 18-point criteria review, and successfully complete an on-site inspection. Currently, 15 pharmacy sites representing more than 12,000 pharmacies carry the VIPPS seal.

In addition, NABP is further increasing its efforts to hold Internet drug distributors accountable for meeting patient safety standards with the development of the Internet Drug Distributor Identification program. When the program launches later this spring, consumers will be able to visit the NABP Web site for a comprehensive database of Internet sites involved in the distribution and dispensing of prescription drugs. This list will clearly identify those Internet sites that legitimately offer prescription medications and that are licensed and practicing in compliance with state and federal laws, as well as sites selling and distributing medications illegally.

Through the Internet Drug Distributor Identification program, NABP also will provide to the state boards of pharmacy and federal law enforcement authorities information on noncompliant Internet drug distributors, including their domain and source information if found. Criteria for distinguishing licensed Internet pharmacies from Web sites illegally offering prescription medication will be based on a modified version of the VIPPS program. These standards are currently being developed with input from stakeholders throughout the pharmacy community.

NABP is the independent, international, and impartial Association that assists its member boards and jurisdictions in developing, implementing, and enforcing uniform standards for the purpose of protecting the public health.
