Sellers of Unapproved Drugs Proliferate Online, Posing a Serious Threat to Global Public Health, Reports NABP
Date:11/1/2013

s:

  • 5,017 (49%) offer foreign or non-FDA-approved drugs
  • 9,064 (88%) do not require a valid prescription
  • 2,394 (23%) have a physical address located outside of the US, and most (62%) rogue sites post no address whatsoever
  • 1,638 (16%) do not have secure sites, exposing customers to financial fraud and identity theft

To help US consumers find the safest sources for purchasing medicine online, NABP developed the VIPPS® (Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites) accreditation program. Consumers are encouraged to look for the VIPPS Seal on an accredited site and check NABP's list of accredited sites on its consumer protection Web site, www.AWARErx.org.

In addition, NABP is working to provide consumers worldwide with a trustworthy online space where they can find legitimate pharmacies through its .PHARMACY generic Top-Level Domain initiative. Only legitimate Web site operators that adhere to pharmacy laws in the jurisdictions in which they are based and to which they sell medicine will be able to register domain names in .PHARMACY.

For the full report with detailed findings on the characteristics of rogue Web sites, and an infographic, visit www.AWARErx.org/get-informed/safe-acquisition/not-recommended-sites.

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