Public Citizen, Demand Progress and RxRights.org Join Others Opposing U.S. Pharmacy Industry Group From Controlling “.Pharmacy” Domain Registration
Date:5/30/2013

White Plains, NY (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

Consumer watchdog and activist groups, Public Citizen, Demand Progress, and RxRights.org have joined a chorus of others opposing a bid by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to control the registry of a proposed new Internet domain ending in “.Pharmacy” (dot pharmacy). NABP’s goal is to create a marketplace where only those websites ending in .Pharmacy are considered legitimate, but NABP’s standards would ban any online pharmacy outside the U.S. that sells to Americans from being registered, including those legally operating in Canada with licenses verified by PharmacyChecker.com. Millions of Americans rely on affordable medication purchased from such pharmacies.

Opponents of NABP’s bid believe its actions will advantage pharmaceutical companies and U.S. pharmacies by protecting their profits and sales to the disadvantage of American consumers whose access to medicines will be curtailed.

The NABP application for .Pharmacy has passed the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers’ (ICANN) initial evaluation criteria but its final approval remains uncertain.

NABP proposes to act as an impartial organization in making the rules for Internet pharmacies on a worldwide basis, but its application is funded by Merck, Eli Lilly and other drug companies. Its executive committee includes executives and employees of chain pharmacies in the U.S., such as CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart. Those industries have strenuously lobbied against personal drug importation for over the last decade and pressured the White House to dissuade consumers from buying medication outside the United States.

Here’s what activists have written about NABP’s application:
