European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) post-marketing Pharmacovigilance (PV)
regulations known as the EMA PV Modules are designed with the expectation that
companies adhere to this new global “gold” standard regarding the receipt,
processing, managing, maintenance, and submissions of Adverse Event (AE) data
to the relevant health authorities. Not only are these standards applicable to
EU-based companies, but any company marketing products (drugs or devices) on a
global level. We will review the FDA and EMA expectations, and apply them to
the various PV audits.
This course is designed
for those that already have some post-marketing PV experience (either
experienced auditors or practical hands-on PV staff). Learners will receive training
on how to audit PV at the local level, but to do it with a global perspective.
The course will focus on understanding PV agreements, and reporting to health
authorities and the relevant auditing mechanisms, including the generation of
the annual audit plan based on a risk assessment; generating audit agendas once
the plans are put into play; understanding Safety Data Exchange Agreements
(SDEA); understanding Periodic Safety Update Reports (PSURs); requesting
pre-audit information of PV departments in-house, at a license/marketing
partner, vendor, or distributor; and generating the correct categorization of
findings for the audit reports.

the correct information and timeframes

based on the type of PV audit required
- Request relevant PV data as part of
the audit preparation activities
