HireRight Offers Pharmaceutical Representative License Verification to Support Legislation Driving Ethical Promotion of Pharmaceutical Sales

IRVINE, Calif., February 8, 2018 – HireRight, a leading provider of global employment background checks, drug testing, education verification, and electronic Form I-9 and E-Verify solutions, has added Pharmaceutical Representative License Verification to its professional license check product offering. This new verification further supports pharmaceutical customers and the cities driving the ethical promotion of pharmaceutical sales through legislation requiring that pharmaceutical representatives are licensed.

“We are proud to support the cities and the companies that are dedicated to the ethical promotion of pharmaceutical sales,” said Mary O’Loughlin, vice president and managing director of healthcare and life sciences at HireRight. “By verifying that pharmaceutical representatives are licensed and demonstrating their adherence to ethical standards, our customers are a part of an effort to address major issues that can stem from the misrepresentation of these products.”

Washington, D.C. was the first city to enact this legislation in 2008, and the City of Chicago announced similar legislation in 2016, with added declaration requirements for representatives, such as the disclosure of doctor outreach, drugs pitched to doctors, samples provided, and any gifts or other payment offered.

HireRight’s new offering will support pharmaceutical companies conducting business in Washington, D.C. and Chicago by offering verification of the pharmaceutical representative license in these markets as well as markets that may adopt similar legislation in the future.

“HireRight’s goal is to provide products and services that help our clients manage their compliance requirements with legislation that impacts their markets and their customers,” said Jurgen Leijdekker, CEO of HireRight. “This verification offering is the latest enhancement we have made to facilitate our clients’ compliance with ever-changing laws and regulations.”
