GEMCO MEDICAL: Awarded Prestigious VAWD® Accreditation by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy

GEMCO Medical issued the following announcement on May 21.

GEMCO Medical, a national medical supply wholesale distribution facility and logistics provider, has been awarded the prestigious VAWD® accreditation by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP).

The Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors® (VAWD®) program aims to provide assurance that wholesale distribution facilities operate legitimately, are validly licensed and in good standing, and are employing security and best practices for safely distributing prescription drugs and medical devices from manufacturers to pharmacies and other institutions. Applicants for accreditation undergo an exhaustive criteria compliance review, licensure verification, a survey, background checks and screening through the NABP Clearinghouse.

Those wholesale distributors that achieve accreditation are in compliance with state and federal laws and NABP's VAWD criteria. Once accredited, facilities will be reviewed annually and will have to undergo a site survey every three years.

Earning the VAWD accreditation validates GEMCO Medical's deep commitment to keeping counterfeit and/or diverted product out of the marketplace, and thanks the NABP for recognizing its dedication to keeping patients safe.
