1 Be (pharmaco)vigilant! Important changes in the
PV-legislation BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

2 Does a safe environment guaranty safety?
The Pharmacovigilance legislation after 2012 Does a safe environment guaranty safety? M.Sangeleer, MD Medical Affairs Manager, Eli Lilly Benelux Lecturer at the Free University of Brussels (ULB) BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

3 Does a safe environment guaranty safety?
09/12/10: BeAPP Cultural event: Johan Braeckman: « Evolutionism & creationism » BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

4 Does a safe environment guaranty safety?
There is always variation There are more organisms that are born that the amount which can survive (struggle for life) The one who survive are the fitests There is natural + sexual selection The process is repetitive from generation to generation (positive feed-back) At the end, adaptations arise BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

5 Pharmacovigilance evolution
Thalidomide Computerised system Internationalisation Proactive approach EU reg 1235:risk based regulation Ad hoc surveillance& risk management plans Involvement of all staleholders Improvement collaboration Risk Management systems/plans Embryo of EU worksharing Signal detection Worldwide databases MAH Collaboration between states (WHO,…) Collection of AR 2000 2012 BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

6 Objectives and Key measures of the new PV law
Reinforcement and modernisation of current system (more rapid decisions): Additional Monitoring - ↗signal detection Pro-active Risk Management Plan for all products = CONDITION for registration Harmonisation of decisions and work sharing: reduction of redundancy Harmonisation of post –marketing, non- interventional studies for safety and efficacy (PAES/PASS) Reinforce the link between safety evaluations and regulatory actions Reinforcement of patient protection &engagement - increase the communication and transparency Direct reporting to the Agencies (web portals) Information Available on the webportal of Agencies Introduction of impact of drugs on the environment BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

7 BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12
More actors ICH CIOMS EC NCAs EMA HCPs MAHs Quality? (faster, better, perceived severity, final outcomes, impact on QOL, motivation?)- Role of Advocacy groups Patients: Awareness and engagement – reporting, acting on information BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

8 MAH operational pharmacovigilance tasks
Adverse event reporting Expedited reporting of ICSR Periodic reporting Labels updates (4.8) Proactive surveillance Risk management plan Risk assessment Risk minimisation plan Risk minimisation activities Studies: PASS- PAES Labels updates (4.4) BeAPP pharmabe, Brussels Nov 23 12

9 Legislation main changes for the MAH
AE expedited reporting «OLD» LEGISLATION «NEW» LEGISLATION Patient reporting: no legal basis Electronic reporting:no legal basis Definition of ADR: « under normal conditions » SERIOUS ADRs to EV- 15 days Patient reporting: legal basis Electronic reporting legal basis Definition of ADR: also in case of off label use, misuse,… NON SERIOUS ADRs to EV: 90 days No expectedness 9 BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

10 Consequences for MAH Which AE? Which AE? Volume Electronic transmission (E2B)- signal detection Different timelines Identification and « medical validation » of patient reports Assessing causality? Perform follow-up with patients? What about precription medicines? Effect on treating HCP, if more administration is required? Duplicate reports? Resources, Training, adaptations of rules and procedures BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

11 MAH operational pharmacovigilance tasks
Adverse event reporting Expedited reporting of ICSR Periodic reporting Labels updates (4.8) Proactive surveillance Risk management plan Risk assessment Risk minimisation plan Risk minimisation activities Studies: PASS- PAES Labels updates (4.4) BeAPP pharmabe, Brussels Nov 23 12

12 Legislation main changes for the MAH
Periodic reporting «OLD» LEGISLATION «NEW» LEGISLATION PSUR PSURs for all MAs PSUR Worksharing on voluntary basis NO central filing Periodic Benefit Risk Evaluation Report submission +cycle in function of risks Worksharing: legal basis Central repository BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12 12

13 MORE EXPLICIT EVALUATIONS OF B/R
On the grounds: more pragmatic approach Ad hoc periodicity according to risk close link with RMP Scientific evaluation > data Tabulations> line listings Cumulative data starting +new information of this period Summaries of studies incl in unauthorised indications Extensive chapters on signal detection; benefit/risk evaluation Therefore , MAH is granted 10 extra days for 6 or 12 monthly reports after the datalock point 30 days for reports of a longer frequency after the datalock point BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

14 PSUR-PBRER: worksharing & simplifications
On the format Unique List of Union Reference Dates & frequencies: EURD list Single assessment (variation, suspension, revocation all over EU) Repository for submission of PSURs (Common European Submission Platform) No PSUR anymore for generics and « well established use » medications Less work thanks to worksharing? BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

15 MAH operational pharmacovigilance tasks
Adverse event reporting Expedited reporting of ICSR Periodic reporting Labels updates (4.8) Proactive surveillance Risk management plan Risk assessment Risk minimisation plan Risk minimisation activities Studies: PASS- PAES Labels updates (4.4) BeAPP pharmabe, Brussels Nov 23 12

16 Legislation main changes
Transparency «OLD» LEGISLATION «NEW» LEGISLATION Eudrapharm not used- few transparency Transparency: SPC,PIL to be published EudraPharm (EVPMD) to be populated and up to date SPC,PIL and summary of SPC (lay public) +PAR (summary for the public, condition of MA) BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12 16

17 BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12
Scope and timelines Timelines broken down into steps: July 2, 2012 : MAH submit information on ALL medicinal products in EVPDM 2 July 2012 : variations/suspensions/revocations within 15 calendar days >1 Jan 2015 : MAH can submit using the new standard (IDMP ) >31 Dec 2015: All product information must be resubmitted according to ID MP. ISO IDMP standards, a set of internationally harmonised specifications for the unique identification of medicines BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

18 BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12
Consequences for MAH They state reading the label might harm the eyes Resources to hold timelines Questions from patients? Volume of events ? Risk of induced effects? BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

19 MAH operational pharmacovigilance tasks
Adverse event reporting Expedited reporting of ICSR Periodic reporting Labels updates (4.8) Proactive surveillance Risk management plan Risk assessment Risk minimisation plan Risk minimisation activities Studies: PASS- PAES Labels updates (4.4) BeAPP pharmabe, Brussels Nov 23 12

20 Legislation main changes for the MAH:
Proactive PV «OLD» LEGISLATION «NEW» LEGISLATION RMP if required RMP not evaluated PASS/PAES: no legal basis Additional monitoring: no legal basis RMP for all applications (proportionate to risks) Legal basis for evaluation of the RMP-RMAactivities PASS/PAES legal basis Additional monitoring: legal basis 20 BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

21 Consequences of RMP provisions
Compulsory assessement of impact: studies, surveys,... cost + burden for HCP Public summary on the European Web Portal Readibility for lay reader Linked with list of products with additional monitoring MEDIA ATTENTION BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12 21 21

22 Media consequences Media trained Resources –Crisis and communication management BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

23 RMP in Belgium: Introduction of timelines…..
PAES-PASS: Written approval/denial given by belgian authorities/PRAC after 60 days MAH has 30 days to express its wish to react to PASS/PAES requirement Need to report on the progress reports ( timing to be agreed) Risk minimisation activities local approval process: 2 months if no Medicines Commission 4 months if Medicines Commission and external expert Clock stops and timelines for MAH too Enough staff needed : reactivity BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

24 Legislation main changes for the MAH :
Organisation «OLD» LEGISLATION «NEW» LEGISLATION Detailled Description Pharmacovigilance System Renewal submission 6 month before expiration of validity Signal detection: no legal basis POST MA inspections Free of charges Pharmacovigilance system master file Renewal submission 9 month before expiration of validity Signal detection: legal basis (at least once monthly) PRE and POST MA inspections and more focus on sharing information between CA Fees to be payed at EU and natonial level BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12 24

25 Contributions in Belgium??
Funding for PV resources/staffing at the AFMPS/FAGG: 58€/registration-All products 0,0118€/sold pack / National-MRP products 650€/DSUR for IMPs program law published 06/04/12 (entry into force 17/04/12) Circulars RD 16 jul 2012 on DSURs payments: (effective 18 oct 12) BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

26 Conclusions: Does a safe environnement guaranty safety?
Maximising benefit, minimising risk of medicines, so focus on benefit/risk More pragmatic , risk-based approach Focus on transparency Volume of events – balanced by more efficient signal detection- duplicates? Effect of increased patients/media interactions ? New formats & cycles Processes & workload: will increase at first Simplification/harmonisation: reduce duplicate work at long term Timelines: more dynamic system reactivity will be needed (on demand PASS, PBRER, RMAs) Fees?: will they put staffing at risk? (SME) BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

27 Does a safe environment guaranty safety?
Basic principle remains unchanged It is still no rocket science:… There is a human factor ….There is always variation… BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

28 Conditions for a safer PV?:
Learn to cope with « variation »= Mitigating the « Human Factor » Awareness & education of all stakeholders including patients, patients associations and HCP- (manage duplicates) Resources to hold timelines at both MAH/NCA/…PRAC? Sufficient skilled users of signal detection tools Multidisciplinary teams (RMPs) Learn to cope with media BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

29 Does a safe environment guaranty safety?
Probably,… a fitest pharmacovigilance,…..adapted to the variation Maybe we shouldn’t disturb the medical community for such a minor manifestation? BeAPP pharma.be, Brussels Nov 23 12

32 Stability pact

33 Major challenges for SMEs
SMEs oriented towards Rx, OTC medicines, MD, food, cosmetics…. Less complaints We take our responsibility! Requirements on Update EUDRAPharm: (European medicines database) Submitting product data =>mandatory from 2 July 2012 EXtended EudraVigilance Medicinal Product Dictionary (XEVMPD) specific tool for SME foreseen in EVWEB PSMF (audits/inspections, patients support programs, subcontracts,…) RMP-RMA-PASS/PAES Patients/public management=>who will manage media reactions?

34 IMPACT FOR SMEs Guidance from NCAs - has there been enough and oriented for SMEs? Complying with the Electronic transmission As an SME, I cannot afford to spend tens of thousands of Euro on a PV database and a gateway: EVWeb: one off-training course, free tool Contract it out: Stakeholder roles and responsibilities =>importance of well defined contract (detailed description of delegated tasks, data exchange, agreed timelines, definitions,…) MAH retains full responsibility MAH need to ensure an effective quality system =>Evaluate risk/benefit Impact on competitiveness and business profit

35 Costs for a SME? Workload…will it be reduced or augmented?
Software tools and technology costs? MEdDRA terms is free to use in EVWEB for Small & micro-sized but not for medium sized Human Resources and training needs – what impact will these have on SME business? Insourcing vs. outsourcing? Fees: EU vs Belgium as NCA Special fee for inspections ?

36 Thank you for your attention

37 Before and after 1235: legislation review
Pharma.be/BEAPP Thierry ROISIN – 23/11/2012

38 Plan New legal framework as regards pharmacovigilance of medicinal products for human use GVPs Legislation : main changes PRAC Union-wide assessment of phvig issues Strengthened transparency and communication Impact for SME

39 New legal framework as regards pharmacovigilance of medicinal products for human use
Regulation (EU) No 1235/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 December 2010 amending, as regards Pharmacovigilance of medicinal products for human use, Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 laying down Community procedures for the authorisation and supervision of medicinal products for human and veterinary use and establishing a European Medicines Agency, and Regulation (EC) No 1394/2007 on advanced therapy medicinal products (specific provisions on centrally authorised products and EMA tasks) Directive 2010/84/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 December 2010 amending, as regards pharmacovigilance, Directive 2001/83/EC on the Community code relating to medicinal products for human use (nationally authorised products and common provisions) Adopted by both Council and EU parliament and publication on 31 Dec 2010 Most of the provisions came into force in July 2012

43 Legislation : main changes
«OLD» LEGISLATION «NEW» LEGISLATION DDPS RMP if required Definition of ADR: under normal conditions SERIOUS ADRs to EV Patient reporting: no legal basis PSURs for all MAs PSUR WS on voluntary basis Pharmacovigilance system master file RMP for all applications (proportionate to risks) Definition of ADR: also in case of off label use, misuse,… SERIOUS and NON SERIOUS ADRs to EV Patient reporting: legal basis PSURs submission in function of risks PSUR WS: legal basis

44 Legislation : main changes
«OLD» LEGISLATION «NEW» LEGISLATION Renewal submission 6 month before expiration of validity Signal detection: no legal basis PASS: no legal basis PAES: no legal basis Additional monitoring: no legal basis PhVWP Renewal submission 9 month before expiration of validity Signal detection: legal basis PASS: legal basis PAES: legal basis Additional monitoring: legal basis PRAC New urgent union procedure More transparency

45 New scientific committee within the Agency
PRAC New scientific committee within the Agency Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee - Reg art. 56(1)(aa) Mandate – Reg. art. 61a §6 “ All the aspects of the risk management of medicines … having due regard to the therapeutic effect of the medicinal product …”: Recommendations to CHMP and CMD(h) on Phvig issues Role in agreement and monitoring of RMPs Prioritisation and review of emerging safety signals Review of PSUR assessments Evaluation of protocols and results of PASS Decision on products under additional monitoring

46 Appointed by each Member State:
PRAC - composition Appointed by each Member State: Appointed by the European Commission following a public call for expressions of interest: 1 member + alternate 27 + EEA countries non voting members 1 patient organisations rep + alternate 1 healthcare professionals rep + alternate 6 members to ensure relevant expertise available

47 PRAC – activities

48 PRAC – activities

49 Interaction with CHMP and CMD(h)
PRAC Interaction with CHMP and CMD(h) PRAC provides recommendations to CHMP and CMD(h) – Reg. art. 56(1)(aa) CHMP / CMD(h) shall rely on the scientific assessment and recommendations of PRAC for the fulfilment of its phvig tasks, including the approval of risk management systems and monitoring their effectiveness – Reg. art. 5(2) / Dir. art. 27 Explanation on the scientific grounds for differences if opinion / agreement is not in accordance with PRAC recommendation

50 Decision-making process
PRAC Decision-making process PSUR PASS Union procedures (art. 31, 107i) PRAC recommendation: regulatory action CHMP (at least 1 CAP) CMD(h) (no CAP) Opinion = maint., var., susp., revoc. Position = maint., var., susp., revoc. If consensus: agreement NO consensus: position majority COMMISSION MS: adopt measures Decision modifying MA (CAP) Decision addressed to MS MAH: submit variation

51 Union-wide assessment of phvig issues
Two procedures for Union-wide post- authorisation assessment of PhVig issues Dir. art. 107i-l = urgent union procedure (revision current art. 107) Dir. art. 31 in other cases Dir. art. 36 deleted PRAC should always give its recommendation when the reason for taking action is based on PhVig data (regardless of whether centralised or non centralised procedures, urgent or normal procedure) – Dir. Cons (25a) Procedures laid down in Directive 2001/83/EC to be followed, also for centrally authorised products – Reg. cons. (9a)

52 Union-wide assessment of phvig issues
Urgent Union Procedure Triggers - Dir. art. 107i Urgent action necessary, as a result of the evaluation of phvig data. MS / Commission: considers suspending or revoking a MA; considers prohibiting the supply of a medicinal product; considers refusing the renewal of a MA; is informed by the MAH that, on the basis of safety concerns, he has interrupted the placing on the market of a medicinal product or withdrawn a MA, or that he intends to do so; considers that new contraindications, a reduction in the recommended dose, or a restriction to the indications is necessary;

53 Strengthened transparency and communication
European and national (safety) web portals National medicines web-portal – Dir. art. 106: summaries of RMP (national MA) list of medicinal products referred to in Article 23 of Reg. information on the different ways for reporting suspected ADRs, including the web-based structured forms (Reg. art. 25) .. European medicines web-portal – Reg. art. 26: agendas and minutes from each meeting of the CHMP and PRAC and the CMD(h) as regards phvig activities summary of the RMP (CEP authorised products) Assessment conclusions, recommendations, opinions, agreements and decisions (for PSURs, urgent union procedure, PASS) taken by CHMP, PRAC, Commission, NCA and CMD(h)

54 Strengthened transparency and communication

55 Impact for SME all the provisions of the phv legal framework (obligations for MAHs) are also applicable for SME Consequently, each MA must have a pharmacovigilance system possibility to subcontract certain activities to another organisation or person (cfr I.C.1.5. module I GVP) 55

56 Impact for SME completeness and accuracy of the PSMF
In case of subcontract, the MA retains full responsibility for the completeness and accuracy of the PSMF The ultimate responsibility for the fulfilment of all phv tasks and responsibilities and the quality and integrity of the phv system always remains with the MAH The MAH shall ensure that an effective quality system is applied in relation to the subcontracted tasks 56

71 Additional monitoring and implementation of ▼ and standardised statements in SmPC and leaflet
1. Background [Reg 726/2004 whereas clause 17] … some medicinal products are authorised subject to additional monitoring. This includes all medicinal products with a new active substance and biological medicinal products, including biosimilars, which are priorities for pharmacovigilance. Competent authorities may also require additional monitoring for specific medicinal products that are subject to the obligation to conduct a post-authorisation safety study or to conditions or restrictions with regard to the safe and effective use of the medicinal product. Medicinal products subject to additional monitoring should be identified as such by a black symbol and an appropriate standardised explanatory sentence in the summary of product characteristics and in the package leaflet. A publicly available list of medicinal products subject to additional monitoring should be kept up to date by the European Medicines Agency ……

72 New regulation 1027/2012 amending Reg. 726/2004:
Additional monitoring and implementation of ▼ and standardised statements in SmPC and leaflet 1. Background Mandatory scope [Article 23 (1) of the Regulation] Two categories of medicinal products shall be automatically included in the list : a) “Medicinal products authorised in the Union that contain a new active substance which, on 1 January 2011, was not contained in any medicinal product authorised in the Union”; b) “Any biological medicinal product not covered by point (a) that was authorised after 1 January 2011”. New regulation 1027/2012 amending Reg. 726/2004: extends mandatory scope products subject to specific conditions will be included under mandatory scope cfr. red text on next slide

73 Optional scope [Article 23 (2) of the Regulation]
Additional monitoring and implementation of ▼ and standardised statements in SmPC and leaflet 1. Background Optional scope [Article 23 (2) of the Regulation] There is also the possibility to include in the list medicinal products subject to conditions, not falling under the mandatory scope. This can be done at the request of the EC or the NCA, as appropriate, following consultation with the PRAC. conditions or restrictions with regard to the safe and effective use [Reg Art 9(4)(c), Dir Art 21a(d)]; to take certain measures for ensuring the safe use of the medicinal product to be included in the risk management system [Reg Art 9(4)(ca), Dir Art 21a(a)]; to conduct post-authorisation safety studies (PASS) / post-authorisation efficacy study (PAES) [Reg Art 9(4)(cb) (cc) and Art 10(a), Dir Art 21a(b)(f) and Art 22a]; stricter reporting of ADRs [Reg Art 9(4)(cb), Dir Art 21a(c)]; conditional approval, i.e. authorisation is granted subject to certain specific obligations (e.g. the performance of further studies), to be reviewed annually by EMA [Reg Art 14(7)]; marketing authorisation under exceptional circumstances [REG Art 14(8), DIR Art 22]; the existence of an adequate pharmacovigilance system [DIR Art 21a(e)]. when a competent authority imposes an obligation on a marketing authorisation holder to operate a risk management system for a medicinal product approved before 2 July 2012 [REG Art 21(2)] or 21 July 2012 [DIR Art 104a].

74 Additional monitoring and implementation of ▼ and standardised statements in SmPC and leaflet
2. Creating and maintaining the list of product under additional monitoring EMA and NCAs will be responsible for (automatic) inclusion of substances on the list products will normally remain on the list for 5 years for mandatory scope products removal will be tied to the renewal procedure for optional scope products removal will be tied to fulfillment of conditions List to be published on EMA + NCA web portals: Q1 2013? → publication of list to be aligned with EC’s selection of black symbol (2 July 2013) ? Will MAHs know in advance of publication of their products? ? Will national schemes co-exist?

75 Additional monitoring and implementation of ▼ and standardised statements in SmPC and leaflet
The SmPC and the package leaflet shall include the statement “This medicinal product is subject to additional monitoring”. That statement shall be preceded by a black symbol which shall be selected by the Commission following a recommendation of the PRAC by 2 July 2013*[Reg. 2012/xx to be published], and shall be followed by an appropriate standardised explanatory sentence [Art. 11 and 59 of Directive 2001/83/EC and Art. 23(5) of Regulation (EC) No 726/2004]. Selection of black symbol:  PRAC recommendation (Oct 2012): inverted black triangle (▼) Commission Decision (before 2 July 2013): Q ? EC public consultation on phasing-in launched 21 Nov till 10 Jan 2013 [http://ec.europa.eu/health/files/pharmacovigilance/2012_11_09_pb__black.pdf] Standardised statements for SmPC and leaflet: CHMP endorsement of the QRD template / translation / ..

78 Non-interventional post-authorisation safety studies (PASS)
Scope of dir. 2001/83, chapter 4 “supervision of PASS”  a post-authorisation study should be classified as a PASS, when the study includes one of the following objectives [GVP, VIII.B.3]: to quantify potential or identified risks to evaluate risks of a medicinal product used in patient populations for which safety information is limited or missing (eg pregnant women, specific age groups, patients with renal or hepatic impairment) to provide evidence about the absence of a risk to assess patterns of drug utilisation that add knowledge on the safety of the medicinal product (eg indications, dosage, co-medication, medication errors) to measure the effectiveness of a risk minimisation activity.  PASS initiated, managed or financed by a MAH non-interventional  If a PASS is a clinical trial: dir. 2001/20/EC and Vol. 10 of Eudralex shall be followed

79 Non-interventional post-authorisation safety studies (PASS)
… voluntarily or pursuant to obligations non-interventional PASS; initiated, managed or financed by MAH applicable legislation Pursuant to an obligation imposed by a competent authority: condition to the MA [Dir. art. 21a and art. 22a / Reg. art. 10 and art. 10a] exceptional circumstances MA [Dir.

102 How to qualify for quality in the near future and be audit ready
Nele Matthijs

103 How to qualify for quality in the near future and be audit ready
What do we expect from industry in relation to safety reporting of drugs. How to be prepared for an inspection ? How to ensure the effectiveness and correctness of our pharmacovigilance system

104 A journey of quality

105 Journey of PhV Legislation
Regulation & Directive Increasing level of detail Implementing Measure Good Vigilance Practices

106 GVP : Good Pharmacovigilance Practice
Apply to marketing-authorisation holders, the Agency and medicines regulatory authorities in EU Member States Cover both centrally authorised and nationally authorised medicines Comprise 16 modules, each of which covers one major process in pharmacovigilance

107 Just a flavour of the changes
Pharmacovigilance System Master File (PSMF) Expedited reporting (new requirements!) PSUR and the new format (to submit or not to submit?) Risk Management Plans required for all products- effectiveness of risk minimization activities needs to be assessed Inspections and the role of the Supervisory Authority Inspections of contractors

108 Quality – Quality systems  GVP Module I Inspections  GVP Module III
How to qualify for quality in the near future and be audit ready Quality – Quality systems  GVP Module I Inspections  GVP Module III Audits  GVP Module IV Written for a broad public : basic principles  specific details take out what you need / implement where needed Risk-based approach

109 Module I: Pharmacovigilance systems and their quality systems
-Legal requirement for quality systems introduced by Directive 2010/84/EU and Regulation (EU) No 1235/2010 The minimum requirements of these quality systems are set out in the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 520/2012 on the Performance of Pharmacovigilance Activities Consistent with the general principles of the ISO 9000 Standards on good quality management practices, Guidance for the establishment and maintenance of quality assured pharmacovigilance systems for MAHs, CAs of MSs and the EMA

110 Module I: Pharmacovigilance systems and their quality systems
Quality cycle: planning, QC, QA, improvements Responsibilities of the MAH regarding EU-QPPV - EU-QPPV qualification – ensure he has acquired adequate theoretical and practical knowledge for the performance of PhV activities - EU-QPPV role and responsibilities : oversight over the functioning of the system in all relevant aspects, including its quality system - Each PhV system can have only one QPPV. 1 QPPV can work for more than 1 MAH for shared of separate PhV systems or act as QPPV for more than 1 PhV system of the same MAH, provided that the QPPV is able to fulfil all obligations.

111 Module I: Pharmacovigilance systems and their quality systems
Training Facilities and equipment Compliance management Record management Documentation of the quality system Monitoring performance & effectiveness of the PV system & its quality system

112 Why and how perform quality control
To ensure that all PhV processes are controlled : Case translation : in which time period, correct translate? Does MAH check when sending a case to global, there is always an acknowledgment of receipt sent to local? Does the MAH verify the timelines of compliance for transmission of ICSRs, PSURs,..? Check internal timelines for reporting SPC updates RMP compliance and effectiveness : - monitoring compliance and effectiveness of RMP and RMA - is the compliance monitoring performed at regular basis Are SOPs up-to-date ?

113 Why and how perform quality control
In many cases, error is made to implement QC only at the end of the implementation of a whole of processes  RISK that an error is made at basic level (f.e. : translation (local level), Meddra coding (global level)) A MAH may have a perfect functioning system on signal detection and PSUR evaluation, but when an error occurs at first level or case processing  big impact on the whole process Start QC at each stage as soon possible and for each individual sub process.

114 Module I: Pharmacovigilance systems and their quality systems
There is broad support for quality systems for pharmacovigilance, but also some concern over the burden to implement them, in particular for smaller marketing authorisation holders or for medicinal products with low risks to patients and public health.  every risk, low or high, is a risk  quality is needed  implement step by step  risk-based planning

115 Module III : Pharmacovigilance inspections
Module provides transparency to the inspection process and gives MAH and NCA guidance on the expectations during inspections Public consultation finished - Final Module III publication in December 2012

116 Module III : Pharmacovigilance inspections
• New concepts in addition to the elements included in vol. 9A: Supervisory Authority PSMF location • Pre-authorization inspections • Information sharing on inspections planned and conducted • Communication of non-compliance

117 Module III : Pharmacovigilance inspections
• Contact person for pharmacovigilance issues at national level : National nominated persons should report to the QPPV. Reporting in this context relates to pharmacovigilance tasks and responsibilities and not necessarily to line management - Availability 24/24 and 7/7  - Employed in Belgium Dispose the appropriate qualifications for the performance his responsibilities as also have the linguistic properties to talk with his interlocutors in the national language of his choice Circular 520/544/545 related to PhV local QPPV  1 new circular related to the local contact person

118 Module IV : Audits - Publication December 2012
Provides clear guidance on planning and conducting audits which will help promote standards and harmonisation throughout the European network. - Welcome the development of the risk-based approach requested in the Implementing Measures

119 Module IV : Audits INDEPENDENCE ( legal requirement, see auditing standards) TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS ( In line with Module I- I.B.7 ) EVALUATION OF AUDIT WORK (quality assessment of the auditors work is a professional requirement)

120 Why Perform Pharmacovigilance System Audits?
Module IV : Audits Why Perform Pharmacovigilance System Audits? To ensure compliance with company procedures and local / global regulatory requirements To ensure company regulatory obligations / commitments are met Increasing Regulatory Inspections –Internal detection of risk is essential To identify process / quality deficiencies and improvements MOST IMPORTANTLY, PHARMACOVIGILANCE AUDITS ACT AS ONE MECHANISM TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF PATIENTS IS MAINTAINED

121 Types of Pharmacovigilance System Audits
Module IV : Audits Types of Pharmacovigilance System Audits Global Pharmacovigilance (QPPV – Global Systems and processes) Company Affiliates (i.e., Country Office, Local Operating Company, Marketing Company) Marketing (Licensing) Partners

122 Global Pharmacovigilance System Audits
Module IV : Audits Global Pharmacovigilance System Audits QPPV : qualification, availability, 24u/7, back-up procedures, training Focus on central Pharmacovigilance processes –Safety Case Processing –Expedited Reporting –Signal Detection / Safety Surveillance –Aggregate Reports (e.g., PSUR, etc.) –Literature Search –Office of the QPPV responsibilities

123 Global Pharmacovigilance System Audits
Assess compliance with company procedures and global Pharmacovigilance regulations Sample of products across therapeutic areas and a defined timeframe (vehicle to assess the system / process) Systems approach focused on processes

124 Company Affiliates Primary focus on local contact person (qualifications// job description, availability – back up procedure, training,.. local Pharmacovigilance responsibilities Assess compliance with local and global company procedures and regulatory requirements (as applicable) Evaluate the flow of safety information (from all applicable sources) from initial receipt to reporting to external parties : AE collection Involves many functional groups that impact the Pharmacovigilance system -Pharmacovigilance Sales -Regulatory Affairs Product Quality -Medical/Clinical Information Technology -Marketing Medical Information Not just an audit of local affiliate but also of global processes to support local affiliates

125 Company Affiliates Reconciliation with Product Quality Complaint handling and medical questions Local quality systems (including compliance monitoring) Regulatory functions (e.g., Aggregate reports submission, Labeling, Regulatory Authority query management, etc.) Contracts and Agreements (Marketing Partners, CROs, consultancy, etc.) : e.g. to verify if resources are sufficient for the required activities as described in the contract (internal/external audit) Promotional Material

126 Company Affiliates Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) Training
Verification of respect of RMAs and their tracking Management of PSP (contracts, collect and management of AEs/ARs,…)  Document Retention / Archive Electronic systems used to support the Pharmacovigilance system Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery

127 Marketing (Licensing) Partner Audits
Includes in-licensed and out-licensed product agreements Focus on compliance with Marketing Partner agreement –Ensure Pharmacovigilance roles and responsibilities are defined and performed –Ensure appropriate exchange of safety information Assess compliance with local and global company procedures and regulatory requirements (as applicable) May be performed independently by company, as a joint audit between companies, or by an agreed upon consultant

128 Global Pharmacovigilance Inspection Trends
Past Present Site based Product safety data specific Independence between Regulatory Authorities globally Limited frequency Mostly FDA Inspections Systems based with safety and /or compliance data as a potential trigger Focused on Pharmacovigilance system –across sites / operations / products Scope includes linkages and relationships across the company to perform Pharmacovigilance responsibilities Increased collaboration across regulatory authorities globally

129 Examples of deficiencies related to the quality system
Lack of quality control in key processes (local as global processes) - lack in FU of cases : has it been performed, how, when,.. - no control on translation, reporting from sales reps - literature reporting : has it been performed, when, how Missing or incomplete SOPs in key processes - back-up procedure, - quality control, - business continuity) No or incomplete job descriptions - reflection of Management - defines necessary skills and training

130 Examples of deficiencies related to the quality system
Deficiency on the performance of audits (local affiliates/ global activities) - risk-based approach - audits of contract companies - skills auditors Lack in interaction between departments - reconciliation of PhV data (medical and quality department) - regulatory affairs : update SPCs, variations, PSURs, implementation of referrals (MRP/DCP/NAT) - interaction global / local : awareness of safety issues / RMP / … Lack in responsibilities of the QPPV - incomplete overview - insufficient back-up system

131 5 Steps You Can Take to Help Ensure Quality in the near future
1 Define the impact of the new legislation on the processes and process documents / database / … 2 Update processes / documents (SOPs, guidance, working instructions, …) / tools as appropriate  risk-based planning 3 Get the concerned people trained in time 4 Perform quality control on the : - training - the performance on PhV activities - the correctness/efficacy of the PhV activity -5 Performance of audits on global and local activities

135 The Belgian consensus on Risk Minimisation Activities
New process M.L.Bouffioux - 23th November 2012

136 Reminder Legal basis: Article 6 § 1stocties of the law of 25th March 1964 on medicines, as amended by the law of 3rd August 2012 (MB 11th September 2012) Some marketing authorisations are granted on condition that the MA holder develops additional risk minimization activities (RMA). Justified if essential for the safe and effective use of the medicinal product The need for such possible measures belongs to the risk management plan (RMP) now mandatory in marketing authorization applications. These RMA activities often require that the marketing of the medicinal product is accompanied by materials, educational or informative programmes or services for healthcare professionals and / or patients.

137 Prior Approval Educational and informational materials, programmes or services shall be subject to the prior approval of the Minister or his delegate (CEO of the FAMHP) - National MAs, DCP, MRP - Centralized marketing authorization - Modification of the RMA without modification of the terms of the marketing authorizations - Variation of the MA-> with new RMA conditions -> with modification of the RMA conditions Implementation should be no later than at the time of the marketing of the medicinal product or, if conditions change, within the time allowed if specified in the MA.

138 Approval procedure Working group with industry -> consensus on a proposal for an approval procedure which should be implemented in a modification of the Royal Decree of 14th December 2006 (future Article 65 quater)

139 Introduction of the approval application
Contents of the file: - Standard application form (already available on the FAMHP website) - 2 copies - Copy of the MA and any annexes (conditions – key elements of RMA) - SPC, leaflet (latest approved version) - Copy and / or complete description of the material, programme or service - Copy of the part of the RMP justifying the implementation of the RMA - Terms of implementation – circulation plan - Possibly, in the case of modification, termination terms or removal procedures of the old material

140 Application validation
Within 15 days the FAMHP checks if the file is complete If OK -> acknowledgment If not OK -> the MA holder is informed by the FAMHP -> 15 days to complete the file If file not complete after 15 days -> application unacceptable -> MA holder informed

141 Application assessment
Within 45 days from the date of validation of the file the FAMHP sends the applicant the results of its assessment. The FAMHP can consult the Commission for medicines for human use (cfr current circular 532 bis to be adapted) . The delay is then extended to 90 days. In exceptional circumstances (e.g. to consult an external expert) the delay period may be extended by 15 additional days The MAH is informed.

142 Assessed items Compliance with the SPC, leaflet, approved items within the MA fulfilled conditions – key elements Necessary, sufficient, appropriate materials, programmes or services to promote the safe and effective use of medicine: - evaluation of the appropriate design and form, of the content, of rules of implementation (adapted to the health care system in place in Belgium) Lack of promotional aspects. Information should be clearly focused on the risk minimisation goals

143 Conclusions of the assessment
1. Positive conclusions -> intention of RMA approval 2. Unfavourable provisional advice Reasons: - Objections to envisaged materials, programmes or services - Request to modify the form and / or content and / or procedures for implementation - Request to complete the file Timing suspended: - The holder responds within a maximum of 60 days - If> 60 days: request denied Conclusions: - intention of (modified )RMA approval - Refusal (to reintroduce an application)

144 Introduction of the final material
Within 60 days of the letter of intended approval the applicant shall submit a copy of: - The final presentation of the approved version - Translations with a declaration of conformity of these translations

145 Approval decision Within 5 days of receipt of the final material and translations the FAMHP - Verifies that the documents are complete - Sends the letter with the decision of approval

146 Implementation at the time of the marketing
- maximum 90 days after approval - if imposed after MA - if modified unless the Minister determines a different timing The MA holder is responsible for the implementation of the RMA and its consistency with the approved dossier

147 References Circular 532 bis will be adapted to the new procedure
-> Usage humain->Médicaments -> Bon Usage -> Additional RMA Menselijk gebruik -> Geneesmiddelen -> Goed gebruik -> Additional RMA Circular 532 bis will be adapted to the new procedure Standard Form of application EMA Guideline on good pharmacovigilance practices – Module V – Risk management systems (V.B11.2 ) – further extensive guidance on additional risk minimisation measures will be provided in Module XVI 10 focus points published on the FAMHP website Guidelines for the content and form published on the FAMHP website Need for on-going dialogue during the procedure between the file manager and the applicant, in particular to avoid having to appear several times before the medicines commission Keep in mind the goal of public health

154 Definitions (2) SUSAR Reference Safety Information (RSI)
Suspected unexpected serious adverse reaction Reference Safety Information (RSI) If SmPC available: most appropriate (with reference to subject safety) version should be selected Otherwise most recent version of RSI (mostly in the Investigator’s Brochure) Will serve to determine and report SUSARs An update/change of the RSI will influence the number of adverse reactions that are reported as SUSAR 154

155 Application (1) Interventional clinical trials with Investigational Medical Products or with nonIMP Post marketing Pharmacovigilance rules are not applicable, even if marketed drugs are used in the clinical trial Non-interventional trials – Compassionate Use and Medical Need Programs follow post-marketing PV rules But CUP are conducted with medicinal products without marketing authorization

169 The Belgian implementation of CT3 (circ. 586 & 593)
Kristof Bonnarens – 23/11/2012

170 Revision of CT-3 guidance
Revised detailed guidance on the collection, verfication and presentation of adverse reaction reports arising from clinical trials on medicinal products for human use (‘CT-3’) was published in the ‘Official Journal’ on 11/06/2011 Replaces ‘old’ guidance documents CT3 and CT4 (Detailed guidance on the European database of SUSARs – Eudravigilance /Clinical Trial Module) Aimed to provide short term improvements and clarifications for safety reporting, awaiting the revision of the current Clinical Trial Directive 2001/20/EC

171 CT3 revision and circular letter 586 (2)
SUSAR = SUSPECTED UNEXPECTED SERIOUS ADVERSE REACTION

172 Definitions (1) SUSAR = SUSPECTED UNEXPECTED SERIOUS ADVERSE
REACTION Causality between event and IMP «reasonable causal relationship»

173 Definitions (1) SUSAR = SUSPECTED UNEXPECTED • it results in death
SERIOUS ADVERSE REACTION • it results in death • it is life-threatening • it requires hospitalisation or prolongation of existing hospitalisation • it results in persistent or significant disability or incapacity • it is a congenital anomaly or birth defect An important medical event is also ‘serious’ if it jeopardises the clinical trial participant or requires an intervention to prevent a serious outcome

174 Definitions (1) SUSAR = SUSPECTED UNEXPECTED SERIOUS
ADVERSE REACTION Adverse reactions should be considered as unexpected if the nature OR severity of the reaction(s) is not consistent with the reference information for the IMP.

175 Definitions (2) RSI: Reference Safety Information
The expectedness of an adverse reaction is determined in the reference safety information (‘RSI’). This should be done from the perspective of events previously observed, not on the basis of what might be anticipated from the pharmacological properties of a medicinal product The RSI is contained in the Summary of product characteristics (‘SmPC’) or the Investigators Brochure Absence of the RSI is the most frequent validation question in 2012

176 Scope Scope CT-3 : Interventional clinical trials falling under Directive 2001/20/EC Responsibilities regarding safety reporting determined only by Directive 2001/20/EC: Whether IMP has a marketing authorisation or not Provisions on pharmacovigilance as set out in Directive 2001/83/EC and Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 are not applicable, even for NIMPs

177 SAE reporting by the investigator

189 How to qualify for quality in IMP safety in the near future
Sarah T’Kindt – 23/11/2012

190 Presentation topics Overview of a GCP inspection
Why is it important to focus on reports from clinical trials? Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site Safety findings from previous GCP inspections Legislation

191 Overview of a GCP inspection
Topics to be discussed during a systemic GCP inspection at the sponsor site: The organization & personnel : qualification and training Outsourcing & contract management Project / trial management The IMP Data management Sample management Safety reporting & evaluation Statistics & study reporting Quality management

192 Why is it important to focus on reports from clinical trials?
For some products, a high proportion of adverse event reports and other safety information comes from clinical trials Reports and other safety information from clinical trials are (usually) high quality data Relevant additional information can be easily obtained (medical history, other AE’s, lab values, etc.) Information can be retrieved in more controlled settings

193 Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site
Preceding a sponsor site inspection there is usually an investigator site inspection of a specific trial from the sponsor to be inspected: The training on site of the study persons concerning the safety reporting process Reconciliation of data between the source, the CRF and the (serious) adverse events that are reported Delegated safety aspects mentioned on the delegation duty log The quality of the monitoring on site The up to date safety information on site

194 Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site (cont.)
Follow up information Information on concomitant medication Evaluation of the SAE form Update of safety information leads to an update of the informed consent form (ICF) The update of the ICF is signed in time by the subjects Confirmation of receipt from the sponsor for the reported information  Findings from the investigator site inspection will be further discussed during the sponsor site inspection.

195 Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site (cont.)
The set-up of the trial: A clear description of the safety reporting process in the protocol A non confusion definition of the severity grade A defined time period for reporting Expedited reporting according to the requirements The reference safety information (RSI): To indicate the expectedness Usually in the Investigator Brochure (IB) Reference information allocated and updated as per regulation requirements

196 Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site (cont.)
The DSMB (Data Safety Monitoring Board) The discision making process for the need of a DSMB Documentation of the discisions of the DSMB The written reports of the DSMB Safety procedures: Clear overview of the timelines and the responsibilities for the safety reporting from collection to reporting Flow of distribution of safety information to the concerned investigators: IB – DIL Emergencies The writing of the DSUR The writing of the CSR

197 Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site (cont.)
Minutes of the safety management team meetings Communication between the safety (PhVig) department and the Clinical trial unit and involvement of the PhVig department in critical trial processes/document review: Confirmation of the expedited reporting Protocol Case Report Form Clinical Study Report  The trial statistician should be a member of the team responsible for the clinical study report, and should approve the clinical report.

198 Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site (cont.)
Compliance of the information in the safety database and the safety information in the DSUR and the CSR Reconciliation of the information in the CT database and the safety database The database(s) used for the storage of safety information A risk level QC of the safety database A documented validation of the database(s) Database ready for demonstration and search of specific topics during inspection

199 Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site (cont.)
The blinding and unblinding process Clear unblinding rules for SUSAR’s An independant safety monitor ISM for blinded trials for which the IMP’s are manipulated in the hospital pharmacy Adequate safety training of the monitors Training and revision training of the safety procedures Training on the discision management of issues and protocol deviations Training of new important information during the trial

200 Overview of safety topics during a GCP inspection at the sponsor site (cont.)
The use of a common adverse event dictionary The role of the local affiliates in the safety process and the communication with global. Is there a local database? Are the procedures in line with the global ones? Qualified employees for the review of the events and the medical writing

201 Safety findings from previous GCP inspections
No confirmation of receipt from the sponsor of the reported SAE from the investigator site No prove of attendance of the concerned study staff on the site initiation visit and/or the investigator meeting Not all adverse events are recorded, only those that the investigator classifies as clinical significant, although the protocol describes that all adverse events must be recorded

202 Safety findings from previous GCP inspections (cont.)
SAE’s that are reported long after the first aknowledge by the PI and no note to file from the monitor. The procedures are not complete of the way of working doesn’t fit with the procedures Day ‘zero’ not clear from the SOP No identification of the responsible persons during the safety flow Only the safety reporting on paper is explained, while the reporting is now done via E2B No quality control of the information mentioned in the DSUR and CSR

203 Safety findings from previous GCP inspections (cont.)
The subject identification at the sponsor site contains the name of the subject AE’s that are crossed out on the AE list without any further explanation or indication of the person responsible for this cross out No audit of the CRO who’s responsible for the safety reporting Very poor documented monitoring reports The use of a non-validated local safety database

204 Legislation Safety reporting falls either under Directive 2001/20/Ec or under the provisions on PhVig as set out in Directive 2001/83/EC and Regulation (EC) No 726/2004.  AE’s may not be reported under both regimes! Law of 07 May 2004: Art. 27 en 28 & the implementing orders Directive 2001/20/EC Directive 2005/28/EC: The IB shall be validated and updated by the sponsor at least once a year Detailed Guidance CT-3: Note: the PhVig rules laid down in Directive 2001/83/EC and Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 do not apply to IMP’s and non-IMP’s.

229 The Switch to Make 229 229 229 AS IS: Gothic TO BE: Art Nouveau
Authority – only driven Authority – driven “supra”control in combination direct linear control with sector – driven “delegated” autocontrol of which selfevaluation can be part co-regulation Vertical link Curvilinear, Linkage with environment Cartesian, dissection of system into parts Holistic, treating systems as a whole Limited interface with operators, one –one interaction Strong Interface with operators Mainly rules Rules and guides Ressources “boxed”, strictly dedicated to one task More rational use of capacity Low trust High trust Authority keeps right of final decision and power of sanction 229 229 229

230 Co-regulation Co-regulation Autocontrol Self evaluation The Interface
Showing the relationship to a central idea Emphasizes both information in the center circle and how information in the outer ring of circles contributes to the central idea Co-regulation Autocontrol Self evaluation Supracontrol The Interface

231 Action Plan Autocontrol / Co-regulation
Develop further the concept AND Develop one concrete model to start with: Medical Devices is an opportunity to develop a model and put it to the test AND Work in parallel in different other domains of inspection where concrete actions are foreseeable and feasible already Publicity Certification of persons: f.i. QPPV, oxygenotherapy AND Design Coordinator (s) at DG Inspection
