Verified Pharmacy Program

NABP’s Verified Pharmacy Program® (VPP®) is the most widely recognized multistate, uniform inspection program accepted by state boards of pharmacy across the nation.

If your pharmacy is seeking nonresident licensure, VPP allows state boards of pharmacy to access your verified pharmacy licensure details, VPP inspection report, inspection responses, and other important data through the use of a secure information sharing network. The program equips the state boards of pharmacy with quality and timely data that can assist in decreasing the time it takes to make licensing decisions.

VPP is ideal for pharmacies that:

  • Need a nonresident pharmacy inspection required by an out-of-state board of pharmacy for renewing or obtaining nonresident licensure.
  • Want to pursue NABP Compounding Pharmacy Accreditation for which VPP is a prerequisite.

Benefits of VPP

Whether NABP programs are new to your business, or you are already NABP accredited and are looking to expand your portfolio, our processes simplify your journey toward VPP Inspection.


Apply for VPP as a standalone program or maximize your investment by creating a comprehensive compliance package for one streamlined, cost-effective accreditation process.
