FMCNA requires the following information as minimum requirements for all new suppliers in the United States.
FEDERAL TAXPAYER INFORMATION
All new US suppliers must provide a current W-9 form along with their Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). Non-US suppliers must provide a current W-8 tax certificate as a part of the setup process.
Suppliers are expected to maintain awareness of, and comply with, all laws and regulatory requirements applicable to their business, including but not limited to, those which relate to the products and services provided to FMCNA (e.g., FDA guidelines).
FMCNA screens suppliers through a number of third party databases including but not limited to the Office of Inspector General (OIG), System for Award Management (SAM), and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Learn more at the OIG/SAM website.
QUALITY AND REGULATORY
FMCNA asks all its suppliers to follow all applicable laws and regulations in each country that they operate in and where we receive your materials and services. We prefer to work with suppliers who understand the need and have formal programs in place for sustainability as part of our environment and the community you operate in, taking care of the carbon footprint and the legacy you leave behind from old, existing, and new facilities and operations. If suppliers provide materials or services that fall under FDA, which ensures compliance with its cGMP, cGDP, cGLP, and FMD (21 CFR part 820)/ISO 13485 regulations, or alternatively fall under ISO 9001, we would require supplier passing supplier quality audit before we can qualify supplier.
Given that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is one of our payors, we comply with the Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE). The LEIE provides information to the health care industry, patients, and the public regarding individuals and entities currently excluded from participation in Medicare, Medicaid, and all other federal health care programs.
