Required Documentation

Indiana law requires wholesale drug distributors (WDD) of legend drugs to obtain and maintain accreditation from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy®’s (NABP®).  You are required to provide a copy of your Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors (VAWD) accreditation certificate with your renewal.

Indiana law requires wholesale drug distributors (WDD) of legend drugs maintain accreditation from the NABP under Section 46, IC 25-26-14-1 et seq. A VAWD application form and instructions can be obtained on the NABP's website at http://www.nabp.net/. If you are physically shipping legend drugs into or within Indiana, you must be licensed and obtain VAWD unless you are explicitly excepted out of the licensure requirement by statute; as such, any company that does not take physical possession of the legend drugs or is exempted as referenced below does not need a license in Indiana.

There are no VAWD exemptions in Indiana for companies that are required to hold a WDD license. If you are required to be licensed as a Wholesale Drug Distributor in Indiana, you must be VAWD accredited.
