Mandatory WERCS Registration Requirements






CVS/pharmacy is modifying its New Item Process to include a

Regulatory Compliance Assessment

   CLICK HERE to view the mandatory compliance initiative announcement from Judy Sansone.  The announcement includes Existing Item and New Item Registration Dates, Training, Penalties, and Frequently Asked Questions.

  CVS/pharmacy and its supplier community continue to be challenged by supply chain disruptions and excessive fees resulting from the increasing number of federal, state, and local laws and regulations for consumer products.

CVS/pharmacy has selected the WERCSmart solution offered by The Wercs Professional Services to help us manage regulatory compliance requirements for all chemicals, over-the-counter health products, pesticides, cleaning products, aerosols, batteries, light bulbs, and other hazardous-material products that you may sell to us.

Your role in this process is to register your chemical based products and formulations with WERCSmart. CLICK HERE for a listing of applicable product categories. The Wercs will then perform an assessment of each product to support CVS/pharmacy’s regulatory compliance goals. Starting June 17th 2013, the New Item Form cannot be completed and/or submitted without a WERCSmart ID that is assigned by WERCSmart during product registration.

We greatly appreciate your cooperation and partnership in this initiative. It will help both of us better manage the regulatory compliance responsibilities that we have, and alleviate the shared and costly exposures of non compliance. 

 In order to make this item registration process easier we recommend you participate in a free webinar as well as utilize the registration checklist below to prepare for product entry into WERCSmart. Suppliers will need to gather the information necessary to complete the registration of a product from various departments within their company such as quality, regulatory, or R&D. CLICK HERE for the product registration checklist.  Use this checklist when compiling information on your product prior to performing the product registration process.
