Mylan distribution center receives VAWD accreditation
PITTSBURGH A Mylan distribution center has received Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors accreditation from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, the generic drug maker announced Tuesday.
Mylan drugs constitute one-in-12 branded and generic prescriptions dispensed in the United States, according to IMS Health, and the company distributes most of its drugs from the center, in Greensboro, N.C. The NABP established the VAWD program in 2004 as a way of certifying companies that keep counterfeit drugs out of the drug supply.
“This accreditation provides further reassurance to our valued customers that Mylan’s products are of the highest quality and are safeguarded against counterfeit and fraud,” Mylan North America president Hal Korman stated.
