6 The New European Pharmacovigilance Legislation Highlights of major changes –PV System Master File (PSMF) replacing the Detailed Description of Pharmacovigilance Systems (DDPS) PV system must meet quality standards Greater transparency of internal audit findings Metrics on pharmacovigilance performance in the Annexes –Risk management plan for all new products Emphasis on proportionate risk minimisation procedures –Legal basis to require Post Authorisation Safety Studies and Post Authorisation Efficacy Studies 5

7 The New European Pharmacovigilance Legislation Highlights of major changes –Additional monitoring list –ADR management and reporting Changes to the definition of an ADR Increased requirements for collection of data ADR reporting simplified –Periodic Safety Update Report (PSURs) Risk proportionate Reorientation toward benefit-risk Greater cumulative context 6

8 The New European Pharmacovigilance Legislation Highlights of major changes –Legal basis for signal detection Fuller datasets for signal detection – all sources Signal management principles Signal tracking systems –Linking safety documentation throughout the life cycle 7 IBDSUR EU- RMP SmPCPSUR

9 The New European Pharmacovigilance Legislation Highlights of major changes –Pharmacovigilance Risk assessment Committee (PRAC) with central and national authorisations decision making –Urgent Union procedures for serious issues –Transparency and communication Publically available information on web portals –Public participation Patient organisation members of PRAC Hearings on safety matters 8

10 The New European Pharmacovigilance Legislation Early Challenges –Increased demands requiring resources –Potential differences and conflicts in pharmacovigilance requirements across different Health Authorities –A need to change to a new way of thinking about pharmacovigilance with a patient centred approach and greater transparency 9
