VIPPS Celebrates 10th Anniversary, Continues to Guide Consumers to Legitimate Internet Pharmacies

In January 2009, NABP launched the Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites(TM) (Vet-VIPPS)(TM) program, which serves as a means to evaluate and accredit legitimately operating online veterinary pharmacy practice sites that dispense medications for companion animals as well as non-food producing animals and ensure that a patient/client relationship exists. This program was developed to assist the states in their efforts to maintain control over the Internet-based distribution of prescription drugs and devices for non-food producing animals as well as hold Internet veterinary pharmacies accountable for meeting patient/client safety practice standards. The Vet-VIPPS criteria, which is based on the Association's original VIPPS criteria, also incorporates new criteria specific to veterinary pharmacies.

Additionally, NABP received an Award of Excellence in the first round of the 2009 Associations Advance America Awards program, a national competition sponsored by the American Society of Association Executives & The Center for Associa
