VIPPS Celebrates 10th Anniversary, Continues to Guide Consumers to Legitimate Internet Pharmacies
Date:3/30/2009

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., March 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Introduced by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy(R) (NABP)(R) in February 1999, the Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites(TM) (VIPPS)(R) program celebrates 10 years of protecting patients. The VIPPS program enables consumers to confidently access important information regarding the licensure and practices of legitimate Internet pharmacies in the nation. A total of 16 pharmacy sites representing more than 12,000 pharmacies have been accredited through the program.

Identified early on as a valuable resource for those seeking information on safely purchasing medications via the Internet, the VIPPS program continues to receive national and local recognition by Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and media including newspapers, magazines, and online health resources.

"For 10 years, the VIPPS program has provided the public instant access to independently verified and maintained information about the legitimacy of Internet pharmacies," states Rich Palombo, RPh, NABP president. "Because of the program's design and the thoroughness of NABP," he says, "VIPPS will continue to provide assurance to consumers and health care professionals that these accredited Internet pharmacies, to which they are entrusting their family's health and safety, are in fact legitimate."

To be considered for VIPPS accreditation, an Internet pharmacy must first complete the VIPPS application and include documentation that verifies adherence to the rigorous 19-point criteria. Once the application and supporting documentation have been received, NABP staff begins the verification and evaluation process, which includes a site visit conducted by one or more surveyors. The VIPPS surveyor(s) will visit the applicant's pharmacy and review and verify the policies and procedures that implement the VIPPS criteria.
