    An Introduction to WDA

    The landscape of medicinal product distribution in the UK has evolved, with the Wholesale Dealers Licence (WDL) being replaced by the Wholesale Distribution Authorisation (WDA).

    This change mandates that any entity involved in the procurement, storage, or supply of medicines—including for export purposes—must secure authorisation from the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The WDA is crucial for compliance within the pharmaceutical sector. 

    This encompasses both human and veterinary medicinal products.  With regulations intensifying under the Falsified Medicines Directive and updated Good Distribution Practice (GDP) guidelines, obtaining a WDA has never been more essential.
