How does a California Wholesaler or Nonresident Wholesaler Bond ($100,000) work?
This bond is not insurance but rather an extension of credit provided by the Surety (surety bond provider) to the Principal (wholesaler license applicant).
The Principal and the Surety will partner in assuring the performance of the former to the Obligee (People of the State of California and the Pharmacy Board Contingent Fund).
The Principal is primarily responsible for the fulfillment of the legal obligations required. If the Principal fails to do any of the bonded obligations required by the relevant laws, rules, and regulations, the Obligee can file a bond claim.
The claim will first be verified by the Surety before it is settled. Once the Surety has settled the claim, the Principal will reimburse the Surety for the payments made.
