Vet-VIPPS and e-Advertiser Programs Streamlined into .Pharmacy; Customers Must Submit Applications by June 30 to Ensure Continuity in NABP Approval

June 22, 2017

Pharmacies accredited through NABP’s Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites® (Vet-VIPPS®) program and entities approved through the NABP e-Advertiser Approval program have until June 30, 2017, to submit their applications to the .Pharmacy Verified Websites Program to maintain their NABP approval and ensure uninterrupted online program privileges. On August 31, 2017, these programs will be streamlined into the .Pharmacy Program. Because the application review process takes approximately 60 days, June 30 is the last day to ensure timely approval to register a .pharmacy domain name without a lapse in NABP-approved status. If approved, .pharmacy applicants may contact one of NABP’s contracted registrars to register their .pharmacy domain name. Approval and registration must be renewed annually.
