Individual case safety report (ICSR) is fundamental in the safety surveillance of medicines. It is therefore important to capture information on ICSRs in a structured manner and to the highest possible quality standards to support accurate  detection and analysis of drug safety signals. With the quick development of Chinese pharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations, there is an urgent need for our local reviewers to have both higher capacities and more  experience in ICSR medical review, keeping the pace with the professionals around the world. Moreover, local pharmaceutical community will need to comply with the global standards of ICSRs reporting, such as major agencies’ requirement and ICH guidelines, to make the products approved globally, to improve the monitoring of the medicinal products already on the market, thereby to ensure the safety of patients using medicinal products. The most common challenges in ICSR  medical review are accurate event coding, expectedness and causality assessment. This workshop will provide the audience both introduction of global standards and practicing experience.
