Principles for Drug Safety

If Congress and the FDA truly want to avoid another deadly incident of failed drug safety, our policy makers must take this opportunity to address the other vulnerabilities threatening the safety of our prescription drugs.

The Partnership for Safe Medicines has developed three core principles to support quality assurance programs and establish a drug distribution system that is without compromise. These principles include:

1. Protect Our Supply Chain

2. Closely Regulate Those Selling Pharmaceuticals Online

3. Unify in the Fight Against Counterfeit Drugs

We believe the United States needs to be a leader in the global fight against counterfeit drugs. To join us in our stand against counterfeit drugs or obtain your own copy of the Principles for Drug Safety doctrine, please visit
