How does a California Wholesaler or Nonresident Wholesaler Bond ($25,000) work?
A surety bond is a three-party agreement.
Principal – Wholesaler license applicant
Obligee – People of the State of California and the Pharmacy Board Contingent Fund
Surety – Surety bond provider
This bond will protect the obligee against losses if the principal violates any of his or her contractual obligations.
One of those violations is if the wholesaler sells or distributes dangerous drugs or dangerous devices directly to patients (unless the wholesaler is delivering dialysis drugs and devices to home dialysis patients).
The bond will remain void if the Principal fulfills all the required duties without any violation. The Surety will first check the validity of a claim if one is made against the bond. If it’s valid, the Surety will pay the Obligee. The Principal must, however, reimburse the Surety after.
