    Accreditations

    Life is precious… Protect your patients… Today’s drug counterfeiters are becoming more sophisticated.

    In response to this threat, the Food and Drug Administration supports the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) in creation of the Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors® (VAWD®) program. The VAWD® accreditation program is the only one of its kind offering assurances to maintain the integrity of the US drug distribution system.

    McGuff, as a VAWD® accredited distributor:

    • Has been independently audited to verify compliance with state and federal laws
    • Has been independently reviewed and audited to meet VAWD® requirements in seven key areas: licensure; facility; personnel; record keeping; authentication and verification; returned, damaged, and outdated drugs; and policies and procedures
    • Maintains best practices for safely distributing prescription drugs from manufacturer to practitioner or health care facility
    • Maintains best practices for drug and device security

    Protect your patients (and yourself) order your drugs and devices from McGuff Medical Products, a VAWD® accredited distribution company.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is VAWD®?

    Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors (VAWD®) is an accreditation program of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) for wholesale distributors.

    What prompted the development of VAWD®?

    NABP developed VAWD® in response to the Food and Drug Administration's Counterfeit Drug Task Force findings and recommendation that NABP update its Model Rules for the Licensure of Wholesale Distributors. As a result, NABP revised its Model Rules for the Licensure of Wholesale Distributors, which were originally developed in 1987 to assist states with the implementation of the Prescription Drug Marketing Act, and created an accreditation program and information clearinghouse for wholesale distributors to combat counterfeit drugs.

    What are the benefits to our customers of VAWD® accreditation?

    VAWD® identifies legitimate and legally operating wholesale distributors and verifies compliance with state and federal laws (including Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA)) for wholesale distribution to ultimately help protect the public from the threat of counterfeit drugs, which could infiltrate the United States medication supply. Additionally, VAWD® accreditation relieves wholesale distributors of the burden of seller-to-buyer due diligence as may be required by law.

    How often are VAWD® facilities resurveyed?

    Once a wholesaler is VAWD® accredited, a scheduled on-site survey will occur once every three years. However, NABP may elect to survey the wholesale distributor facility at any time, after giving notice and consulting with the wholesale distributor, if NABP receives information indicating that the wholesale distributor may be out of compliance with any of the VAWD® criteria. NABP may also resurvey the facility if it has moved to a new location.
