CIPA Certification Mark

For more than a decade, millions of Americans have relied on members of the Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA) to provide them with safe, affordable medications. CIPA certified member pharmacies meet our stringent standards for reliability and safety in such areas as requiring a valid prescription; maintaining a patient health profile to avoid adverse drug interactions; having a licensed pharmacist on staff to supervise dispensing and be available for patient consultations; and having procedures in place to ensure patient privacy and confidentiality.

Only 63 pharmacy websites meet our high standards and qualify for CIPA membership. See the full list here. Every CIPA member pharmacy prominently displays this exact official CIPA red oval certification mark (also known as a seal) on their website.

Consumers should look for this exact certification mark, not just text language about CIPA membership. The certification mark can be further verified by clicking directly on it - this will return a message generated by the CIPA website that verifies membership (your browser must allow pop-up messages for this to work). If you click on the CIPA certification mark and don't receive this return message, the pharmacy might not be a legitimate member, and be using our certification mark illegally!

Another way to verify the legitimacy of a website is to copy the exact website address from your browser and then insert it in the "Verify a CIPA Member Website" page. To do this, you can write down the exact string of words and symbols you see in your browser, or simply use the "cut & paste" feature on your computer to copy the line of text and the insert it into the verification box on our website.

Fraudulent Certifications

Unfortunately, there are also many other fraudulent "certifications" and diploma-style marks that websites are illegally claiming to be from CIPA. They're not - If they carry a signature by somebody named Steven D. Levitt or Jared Caughey, don't trust them!

Report Fraudulent Websites

If you cannot verify the website as a CIPA member site, please report it to us by sending an email to us so we can post it to our list of fraudulent websites and take appropriate legal action. Through your help and support, we can protect the CIPA certification mark and ensure that only the highly qualified and trusted CIPA member pharmacies that adhere to our standards are legitimately claiming to be CIPA certified.
