The term “State Licensing” can be broad and confusing if you do not understand what is required. The 10th Amendment gives US States the right to govern and therefore license manufacturers and distributors of commercial and Healthcare Practitioner Samples. There is a vast difference in how each state licenses companies for each different type of activity and how much information they request during the license application and renewal process. For Healthcare Practitioner samples, the PDMA (Prescription Drug Marketing Act) requires verification of Healthcare Practitioner state licenses prior to the distribution of samples. In this workshop, attendees will get an overview of the licensing requirements for both Commercial trade products and Healthcare Practitioner Samples and learn the complexities of both.
During this collaborative learning session presented by industry experts, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their own challenges and learn how other companies manage the expectations of the individual states and the federal government. So come join your industry peers in an interactive workshop that will surely be as educational as it will be engaging.
In addition to a very full agenda of workshops and general sessions, we will also be offering more Open Forum time than ever before, focused on a wide variety of topics.
