Why do I need a pharmaceutical wholesale distributor bond?
By purchasing a prescription drug wholesale distributor bond, the principal (wholesale distributor) pledges that his or her duties will be performed faithfully, honestly, and in compliance with all rules and regulations stated in section 450.071 of the Wisconsin Statutes and applicable sections of the Wisconsin Administrative Code. The purpose of this surety bond is to secure payment of fees or costs that relate to the issuance of a license under Wisconsin Statutes section 450.071 and to declare any fees or costs that have not been paid within 30 days of the due date final. The bond protects the state and consumers from financial loss if any negligence or unlawful business practices occur at the hand of the distributor.
Wisconsin prescription drug wholesale distributor bonds will remain in effect for the entire period of an unexpired prescription drug wholesale distributor’s license term, unless the surety chooses to terminate the bond early. If the surety does decide to void the bond agreement, 60 days’ written notice must be provided to the distributor and the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services.
