NABP Supports Legislation Aimed to Protect Patients from Counterfeit Drugs and Fake Online Pharmacies
Date:2/16/2012

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., Feb. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) has documented thousands of fake online pharmacies that endanger the lives of unsuspecting American consumers by distributing counterfeit, adulterated, and substandard drug products, often without requiring a valid prescription. By implementing safeguards, such as a federal registry that would assist consumers in identifying safe Internet pharmacies, The Online Pharmacy Safety Act of 2011 (SB 2002), would help to protect the public health, and NABP has issued a letter expressing the Association's strong support of the legislation.

Describing the thorough accreditation process of the NABP Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS®) and Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (Vet-VIPPS®) programs, the letter to the bill's sponsors, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), indicates the Association's strong support for the reference to these accreditation programs in the Online Pharmacy Safety Act. Recognized as the gold standard of accreditation for Internet pharmacies, VIPPS and Vet-VIPPS are recommended to consumers by Food and Drug Administration, the Partnership for Safe Medicines, and the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies (ASOP).

"In researching the vast number and characteristics of illegal drug outlets in operation, NABP has found that of the 8,789 sites reviewed, 96%, or 8,456, are operating out of compliance with state and federal laws and/or NABP patient safety and pharmacy practice standards," indicates NABP President Malcolm J. Broussard, RPh. "To inform regulators, health care providers, and law enforcement of the latest data on the sites included in the NABP Not Recommended list'/>"/>
