State Licensing Services

Ensure you have the necessary state licenses prior to distribution of your commercial products

State licensing for the distribution of drug products and medical devices is required by most states and needs to be in place prior to distribution of your commercial products. If your company is a product manufacturer (contract, private label, virtual, foreign or sampling), wholesaler or distributor, contract sales organization, broker, third-party logistics provider (3PL), importer or exporter, researcher, laboratory or nonresident (mail-order) pharmacy, you will need to have state licenses in place prior to selling, distributing or dispensing a product. Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions has years of proven experience working with the different states to meet their requirements to successfully secure state licenses for commercial products.
