What the industry can expect in the future

As part of Health Canada’s mandate to maximize the safety, quality and efficacy of health products, Health Canada implemented on August 1, 2004 an inspection program for Good Pharmacovigilance Practices (GVP) (previously known as Post-Market Reporting Compliance). The GVP inspection program is intended to verify that manufacturers, including Market Authorization Holders (MAH) and importers, meet the requirements of sections C.01.016 to C.01.020, C.08.007 (h) and C.08.008 (c) of the Food and Drug Regulations.

To ensure the uniform application of these requirements and to help industry to comply, the Inspectorate program released, on February 11, 2013, the new guidance document entitled Good Pharmacovigilance Practice (GVP) Guidelines (GUI-0102),  the revised documents entitled Risk Classification of GVP Observations (GUI-0063) and the Inspection Strategy for GVP for drugs (POL-0041).  The document Good Pharmacovigilance Practice (GVP) Guidelines (GUI-0102) outlines the interpretations of the regulations with respect to the adverse drug reaction and post-approval reporting requirements (or GVP).
