Verification Program

The PharmacyChecker Verification Program was established in 2003 to help consumers find qualified online pharmacies and is the only independent evaluator of U.S. and non-U.S. online pharmacies. The PharmacyChecker Seal indicates that websites market and sell prescription drugs dispensed from pharmacies in good standing in the countries where they are located. See below for membership requirements.

The program is open to pharmacies and online pharmacies, including retail, wholesale, HMO and veterinary pharmacies. Online pharmacy referral sites are not eligible.

To help healthcare providers and consumers better understand how our verifications protect the public health please see the Verification Program Guide and Standards 1.3.
