In recent years, the pharmacovigilance system (PVS) has turned into a highly complex procedure. Numerous regulations require marketing authorization holders to significantly increase PV standards and to review them regularly. For example, the EMA has recently published a new document on follow-up activities following pharmacovigilance inspections.

What are the tasks and responsibilities of the Qualified Person for Pharmacovigilance (QPPV)? How to implement the requirements in practice - correct and inspection-ready? What is the best way to fulfil the requirement to conduct audits and pharmacovigilance inspections?

This webinar will answer these and other questions and show risk-based approaches on how to deal with the increasing number of audits - e.g. by focusing on audits particularly in critical areas. In this way, time and resources can be saved.

Target Group

This seminar is for QPPVs and all employees, specialists and managers of companies and institutions who are responsible for the pharmacovigilance system and/or for the planning and conducting of PV audits / inspections.
