Following publication of the new pharmacovigilance legislation in December 2010, the Commission’s Implementing Measures for the performance of pharmacovigilance activities and the Good Pharmacovigilance Practices (GVP) replacing Volume 9A bring significant changes to the conduct of pharmacovigilance. Furthermore, the new ICH Individual Case Safety Report (ICSR) Implementation Guide will introduce substantial modifications to the format and content of electronic adverse reaction reporting. These changes have a big impact on the operational procedures and the day to day activities of stakeholders working in pharmacovigilance. This tutorial will focus on the impact of the changes in relation to the new reporting rules and requirements as set out in the Commission’s Implementing Measures and the GVP Modules. It will also highlight the strengthening of the EudraVigilance System to improve transparency, data quality and to support signal detection and management activities in the EU. In addition, specific emphasis will be placed on informing, explaining and helping stakeholders apply the new rules taking into account the international standardization and harmonization activities and data privacy challenges.
