PHARMACY BOARDS LAUNCH NEW LICENSURE AUTHENTICATION SERVICE

AUGUST 01, 2006

The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) has launched a new licensure authentication service aimed at helping "Yellow Page" directories avoid listings for unlicensed Internet pharmacies.

"The rapid growth of on-line pharmacies that offer pharmaceutical services brought with it challenges for those entities wishing to ensure that these on-line pharmacies are operating with a valid license," NABP said in announcing the new Pharmacy Authenticated Licensure Service (PALS).

The initiative will provide a directory of qualified pharmacies and pharmacists-in-charge that can be referred to by the public, authenticating the legitimacy of on-line pharmacies. By using the service, publishers of advertising directories "can easily identify PALS pharmacies and limit their clients to those pharmacies that are authenticated to be appropriately licensed, helping to protect the public health," the association said.
