How to Ensure Pharmacovigilance Practices are Compliant with Global Safety Requirements: Challenges in Asia-Pacific

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) January 21, 2013

National Regulators enact various Pharmacovigilance (PV) regulations in order to ensure that medicines and medical devices are acceptably safe. The regulations and guidelines from the Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS) and the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) guide how pharmaceutical companies manage day-to-day PV activities. Although PV activities such as handling Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSRs), writing Periodic Safety Update Reports (PSURs) and Risk Management Plans (RMPs) are standard processes managed by pharmaceutical companies, the way such activities are regulated by various Regulators is not always harmonized. Requirements and timelines can vary greatly amongst Regulators and are not always consistent with International Standards. As a result, pharmaceutical companies need to ensure they comply with the various requirements and timelines from international Regulators.

Key Discussion Points:

  •     PV Challenges in Asia
  •     Setting up a Local Office to act as the go between Global Headquarters and the Local Heath Authority
  •     Comparing Global Standards to Local Standards, including examples highlighting different ways companies can use to adopt both at HQ and Locally to meet at the regulations
  •     Ensuring compliance locally: How global companies can monitor their offices worldwide to ensure compliance with both local requirements, company requirements and global standards
