The active maintenance of licenses, certifications, registrations and authorizations is a crucial element differentiating regulatory compliance at reputable pharmaceutical logistics services providers.
With patient health in the balance, multiple levels of government and other industry authorities require strict adherence to regulations, standards and practices.
LICENSING AND REGISTRATION
WDSrx is registered in every U.S. State that requires licensing for pharmaceutical Third Party Logistics companies and with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for prescription medications, medical devices, product repackaging and relabeling. WDSrx is also registered by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and relevant State authorities as a Reverse Distributor enabling regulatory compliant product disposition and also as an Importer and Exporter of Controlled Substances.
Supplemental credentials from Federal and National authorities including the FDA, CTPAT, TSA, DEA, DOT and EPA reinforce WDSrx capabilities. Several WDSrx facilities are recognized with NABP Drug Distributor Accreditation administered by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, a national trade organization. NABP Accreditation is earned by facilities that prevent counterfeit or diverted product from entering the supply chain. To support this mission, WDSrx complies with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act that legislates enhanced tracing of prescription drug products through the pharmaceutical supply distribution chain.
The licensing process may involve comprehensive facility inspections, background checks, documentation of adherence to Good Distribution Practices (GDP) and mandatory reporting requirements, third party verification and other conditions.
The penalties for non-compliance can be severe, with fines and disciplinary actions that can jeopardize continuing business operations. For this reason, at WDSrx licensing compliance is the daily responsibility of the company President Adam Runsdorf.
