The pharmaceutical distribution industry can be complicated. The distribution chain, involving drug companies, health care institutions, physicians, patients and foreign governments can easily seem overwhelming to companies trying to purchase US pharmaceutical exports.
The importance of getting it right
A company dedicated to pharmaceutical exports can not only help in understanding and simplifying the process, but can help to ensure that all transactions comply with local and foreign regulations and laws.
It is important to understand the requirements of the importing country, in addition to the requirements for US pharmaceutical exports. Importing countries often have their own regulations to protect their citizens from injury or death, and to keep control on their own costs and potential compensation claims.
Not fully understanding and meeting foreign requirements can lead to issues such as customs delays or denials and the additional and often high, costs of penalties and returned shipments. Not to mention the effects on patients who are waiting for and relying on treatment.
Making it simple for healthcare providers
Healthcare providers, who are on the forefront of providing the best care available, are always searching for ways to manage their operations more effectively. Traditional healthcare provider relationships directly with pharmaceutical manufacturers are cumbersome and complicated. Many healthcare institutions and providers are now turning to US pharmaceutical exporters to simplify the process andaquire the drugs they need to help their patients.
To avoid unexpected problems, it is important that institutions and providers use a reputable pharmaceutical export company, one that has been through the comprehensive US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) requirements process for pharmaceutical exporters. Customers should also ensure that the products they are buying are FDA approved, something a reputable pharmaceutical exporter will guaranteed.
