e-Reg Monitor Service

In today's regulatory environment, pharmaceutical, distribution and healthcare companies are faced with constant changes in federal and state legislation and regulations that affect everyday business. Although no common governance exists among the states, the states do maintain similarities in the way they define and regulate key areas of pharmaceutical marketing practices as well as licensing and distribution activities. To better understand the impact of these state-by-state regulations, BuzzeoPDMA's E-Reg Monitor Service offers two surveys to assist the industry in monitoring these emerging issues.

AVDA members who subscribe to the E-Reg Monitor Service have access to an online tool that provides legislative and regulatory updates on Drug Distribution and Drug Pedigree laws on the Federal level and in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Subscribing members have 24/7 access to the service and receive e-mail notification when updates are available. The annual subscription fee for AVDA members is now $2,500 per AVDA member company. Companies subscribing to this service would individually pay in excess of $25,000 per year.

AVDA Members who have logged on to the E-Reg Monitor Service find it easy to use and check it regularly for updates. Periodic tutorials are presented by BuzzeoPDMA and AVDA staff and AVDA members are welcome to ask questions during and after the webinars.

In addition, there is a chart that encompasses the following requirements for legend drugs and controlled substances for both in-state and out-of-state registration / licensure:

  • Registration / licensure;
  • Surety bond or its equivalent;
  • Authorized distributors of record;
