CREDIT PROCESS – DIRECT ACCOUNTS:

Once the request has been authorized by Purdue Pharma Customer Service, the expired goods can be sent for destruction to a third party destruction company of your choice, at your expense. Expired products must not be returned to Purdue Pharma, under any circumstance.
Upon receipt of the proof of destruction and/or shipment waybill showing the date goods left the customer’s facility for destruction, credit will be issued for eligible expired products at 90% of the current list price.
Purdue Pharma will not be responsible for any handling, processing or destruction fees. Unauthorized deductions are not permitted.
