4 reasons Trump’s drug importation plan won’t work - Politico

Read the full article:  4 reasons Trump’s drug importation plan won’t work - Politico

Importers would need the cooperation of the Canadian government and the drug industry, both of which oppose it.

According to the article:
"President Donald Trump has promised that the plan his administration rolled out Wednesday to bring in cheaper prescription drugs from Canada will immediately lower medication costs. Experts say the plan won’t work — and many write it off as a political stunt. 
Under the proposal, importers would need the cooperation of the Canadian government and the drug industry, both of which oppose it. Importers would have to take many expensive and complicated steps to prove to the FDA that importation wouldn’t harm Americans, and to weave through complex regulations and the intricacies of the U.S. health delivery system."

The industry-wide governance body for DSCSA compliance comes to life - Pharmaceutical Commerce


Read the full article:  The industry-wide governance body for DSCSA compliance comes to life - Pharmaceutical Commerce

According to the article:

"As has been known for years, establishing a successful implementation of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) will require close coordination among manufacturers, wholesaler-distributors, pharmacies and health systems (even, conceivably, individual doctor’s offices)—a tall order. Yet there has been no reliable mechanism for accomplishing this coordination—apart from banging on FDA’s door—to date. That is changing now with the establishment of the Partnership for DSCSA Governance, Inc. (PDG), an independent, nonprofit, “sector neutral” (as it characterizes itself) group to work out the steps toward DSCSA compliance by the law’s 2023 deadline.

Suspicious Phone Calls Continue - Warning About Scam Calls

Updated January 14, 2020

The Board sent out yet another follow-up email with this updated information:

"What can you do to protect yourself?

Licensee security is an important matter. How can you be sure anyone who contacts you on behalf of the Board of Pharmacy or any government agency is legitimate? Here are some important tips from the board and DCA:
  • A board inspector will never call to ask you to pay a fine to the caller.
  • If you have doubts or any questions about a board inspector’s identity, contact the California State Board of Pharmacy at (916) 518-3100.
  • If someone claims to be a board inspector, ask to see the inspector’s badge and business card issued by the Board of Pharmacy.
  • Contact the DCA at (800) 952-5210 to find out if an official investigation is being conducted.
  • If the caller claims to represent the DEA or the FBI, report the call to the DEA’s Extortion Scam reporting program or the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.
  • If the caller’s phone number appears to be a Board of Pharmacy or DCA telephone number, report the scam using the Federal Communications Commission’s consumer complaint form. "

Warning about Scam Calls - An alert from the California State Board of Pharmacy

According to the Board's alert (12/9/2019):

"Licensees have alerted the Board of Pharmacy about a phone caller who identifies himself as Peter Williams or some other name. Sometimes the caller claims to be a board inspector; other times, he told licensees he was a DEA agent. In each case, he claimed to be calling about an investigation and said the licensee would face discipline unless the licensee paid a “fine.”

These calls were part of a scam – attempts to extort money from licensees.

How can you be sure you are speaking to a Board of Pharmacy inspector? Here are some important tips to remember:
  • A board inspector will visit your work place, not your home. Ask to see the inspector’s badge and business card issued by the Board of Pharmacy.
  • An inspector will never contact you by phone to request any form of payment or ask you to pay a fine to the inspector.
  • If you have doubt or any questions about an inspector’s identity, contact the Board of Pharmacy at (916) 518-3100."
