HIDA 2018 State Licensure Report
Licensure requirements for wholesale distributors can often be complex and confusing, especially for those doing business in multiple states. HIDA’s Licensure Standards for Wholesale Drug Distributors report is intended to provide licensure information to both single-state and multi-state distributors.
The report addresses the 50 states that have relevant licensure requirements for wholesale drug distributors. The report includes a listing of each state’s oversight agency for wholesale distributors, links to online applications, references to included statutes and regulations, and licensure requirements.
Further, the report concludes by providing the overarching information on federal licensure (21 CFR 205), as required for distributors by the Food and Drug Administration. The federal section is separate and distinct from the state information.
This report is not intended to be a comprehensive guide of all existing requirements, but is instead a broad overview of each state’s applicable licensure laws and rules. The included requirements and guidelines are based on information received from state Board of Pharmacy contacts and available online information. Wholesale distributors should still obtain the specific law and rule books from relevant state oversight agencies, as all of the included requirements are subject to change without notice. This report is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as providing legal advice. Legal interpretations and questions regarding specific business operations should be directed to authorized state officials.
