Illinois VAWD Accreditation Lawyer

Pharmacist and Attorney Helping Clients Receive Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors Accreditation

To become a wholesale drug distributor, you must earn Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors (VAWD) accreditation. This process involves an extensive review of criteria compliance, including a meticulous examination of operational procedures and policies, license verification, and National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) screening.

If you wish to operate a wholesale drug distribution business, The Law Offices of Joseph J. Bogdan, Inc. can help. Joseph Bogdan is a registered pharmacist, attorney, and pharmacy consultant who represents healthcare professionals before federal agencies and state boards, including the Illinois Board of Pharmacy. His areas of practice include the purchase and sale of pharmacies, pharmacy benefit manager audits, and DEA pharmacy investigations.

With this comprehensive background and knowledge of the industry, Joseph Bogdan assists both existing and new companies that wish to sell pharmaceutical drugs and attain their VAWD accreditation. This guidance often proves critical during the strenuous six- to eight-month accreditation process. With his direction, your enterprise can receive approval on its first attempt.

How to Get VAWD Certified

With support from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, VAWD accreditation was created in 2004 as a way to keep counterfeit and contaminated drugs out of the country's pharmaceutical supply chain. This certification helps ensure legitimacy and compliance so your business remains in good standing and in adherence with measures designed to keep the public safe.

From the moment you decide to become a drug wholesaler, Joseph Bogdan can help you tailor a business plan that will pass intense VAWD scrutiny. The NABP carefully inspects each establishment's policies and procedures to confirm they were not a cut-and-paste from another business. Templates are not accepted.

These plans often surpass 200 pages, require specific customization to your location, and include pinpoint analysis of all conceivable areas of concern. Joseph Bogdan knows the exact elements you must include and how to organize and present them for approval.

What if I Was Rejected for VAWD Accreditation?

Potential drug wholesalers are turned down for a variety of reasons. It is often attributable to insufficient planning, deficient resources, an unwillingness to alter essential facets of the business, or the aforementioned cookie-cutter plan submission. Each day you fail to comply costs you time and money.

Reviewers from the NABP provide time for you to remedy any shortcomings and it is crucial you do so with diligence and urgency. Joseph Bogdan can provide a full review of your previously submitted plan and your facility so you reach full conformity and can then operate a long-lasting and thriving business.
