Food & Drug Protection Division

Drug Program


The Drug Branch of the Food and Drug Protection Division protects the health, welfare and economic interests of the state's consumers of drugs, cosmetics and medical devices. This is accomplished through a program of inspection which ensures such products are safe and properly labeled, stored, and handled. 

Drug Specialists conduct routine unannounced inspections of drug manufacturers, warehouses and distributors to ensure that drugs are safe, wholesome, produced under sanitary conditions, properly labeled, stored, distributed and held under sanitary conditions. Specialists verify compliance with North Carolina law and regulations to ensure the integrity of prescription drugs for human consumption.
