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.

To Verify:

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak worldwide, the global demand for some Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is exceeding current supply availability.

In addition, the manufacturing of the PPE and many other wound care/infection prevention products have been impacted by the global response to the Coronavirus. While you may see product availability reduction in the near-term, please be assured that we at McGuff Medical are continuing to work diligently to ensure an uninterrupted supply of products and alternative products to you.

Additionally, in order to ensure healthcare providers have access to the PPEs they need, the McGuff Company is temporarily limiting PPEs to healthcare providers.

As always, please feel free to reach out to our McGuff Customer Service team with any questions that you may have.
