This webinar will be broadcast in Eastern Time (ET)

The new good pharmacovigilance practices (GVP) regulations have been undergoing implementation since July 2012. GVP are a set of measures to facilitate the performance of pharmacovigilance in the EU. GVP applies to marketing-authorization holders, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and medicines regulatory authorities in EU Member States. They cover medicines authorized centrally via EMA as well as medicines authorized at the national level.

Approaching the two-year anniversary, this webinar will examine how industry has adapted and the real-world impacts of the legislation on Pharmacovigilance (PV) organizations and their processes. The dissolution of Volume 9A, into 16 separate modules, has had far-reaching affects across global PV organizations. The release schedule of the modules and the subsequent revisions has made implementation challenging. Some modules are process and/or organizationally driven, with minimal or no technology implications, whereas others have obvious impacts across both safety systems plus other clinical and regulatory applications.  Some of the downstream affects are still either emerging and/or yet to be fully understood. 

This webinar will examine the state-of-play, to assess whether the perceived implications have been realized versus the actual, and on-going, adjustments to organizations, processes and technology that have proved necessary for the adoption of GVP.
