Supply Chain Security

The Drug Supply Chain Security Act was signed into law along with comprehensive compounding legislation in late 2013. In a nutshell, this legislation establishes a national system for tracing pharmaceutical products through the supply chain and sets national licensing standards for wholesale distributors and third party logistics providers (3PLs). The following document (s) and related information outlines the "need to know" information for independent community pharmacies regarding the implementation of Phase I of this Act that will start in 2015.

NCPA members and staff worked extensively with Congress and helped ensure that the final legislation would not be overly burdensome for community pharmacies.
