The new ICH E2C (E2C) guideline on Periodic Benefit-Risk Evaluation Reports (PBRERs) reached Step 4 in November 2012, and has already implemented in the EU under the new Pharmacovigilance legislation. Also accepted in the US, Japan and other countries, the PBRER may replace existing requirements for post marketing periodic reporting.  This new report represents a significant change from the previous PSUR format and a quantum leap forward towards a document incorporating many new concepts including an integrated evaluation of both benefits and risks of a medicinal product.
