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 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.
