The Prescription Drug Marketing Act of 1987 (PDMA) was signed into law by the President on April 12, 1988.  The PDMA was enacted  to ensure that drug products purchased by consumers are safe and effective, and  to avoid the unacceptable risk to American consumers from counterfeit, adulterated, misbranded, sub-potent, or expired drugs.  The legislation was necessary to increase safeguards in the drug distribution system to prevent the introduction and retail sale of substandard, ineffective, or counterfeit drugs. (

The Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA), was enacted by Congress on November 27, 2013. Title II of DQSA, the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), outlines steps to build an electronic, interoperable system to identify and trace certain prescription drugs as they are distributed in the United States. This will enhance FDA’s ability to help protect consumers from exposure to drugs that may be counterfeit, stolen, contaminated, or otherwise harmful. The system will also improve detection and removal of potentially dangerous drugs from the drug supply chain to protect U.S. consumers. Independent Pharmaceutical is compliant with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DQSA) Sec. 581(27) (A)-(G).
