PDA Accreditation Program
Demonstrate you practice the highest standards
for quality and consistency.
The Physician Dispensing Association Accreditation (PDAA™) assesses physician compounding based on a specific set of standards that concentrate on the quality and consistency of medications produced. These standards are based on the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) <795> Pharmaceutical Compounding Non-Sterile Preparations.
Registration and Eligibility
Physicians will begin the accreditation process by submitting a registration form for review. It will be determined if the Physician is eligible for participation in the Program.
PDA then notifies the Registrant of their eligibility status and for those deemed eligible the application process will begin.
To apply, a physcian must complete the application, prepare all required documentation, and submit these, as well as payment of accreditation fees, to PDA.
The Application and documentation must be submitted to ATA in electronic format. Word, PDF or Excel documents are required.
PDA will conduct a preliminary review. The survey will be scheduled when all required documentation is deemed complete. Upon completion of the survey, the findings will be processed into a report and shared with the applicant.
Any areas of non-compliance will be identified, and the Applicant will have a period of time to correct the non-compliant areas and provide evidence of the correction(s) to the surveyor.
Based on the information provided by the applicant, the data collected during the survey process, and any corrective actions submitted, an accreditation decision will be rendered by the Accreditation Commission, the results of this decision will be sent to the Applicant.
Applicants approved for accreditation are considered accredited physician and will receive a formal letter. Applicants that do not achieve full compliance with standards will receive a formal notification letter and final report with information on identified areas of non-compliance. These Organizations may reapply for accreditation once all non-compliant areas have been corrected.
