Oklahoma ahead of the curve in protecting consumers

BY PHIL WOODWARD Published: November 21, 2012

The NECC case has led to calls for the Food and Drug Administration to step up pharmacy regulation. Fortunately, Oklahoma has taken proactive steps by implementing increased state regulations and adopting the professional standards issued by the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention.

Oklahoma is ahead of the curve in protecting consumer safety, and will continue to work with state and federal officials to ensure the strength, quality and purity of all medications.
