Global Regulatory Requirements for Drug Safety & Pharmacovigilance (Recorded)

  • Training

  • 1 Hour
  • Dec 12, 2023 12:30-15:30 EDT
  • World Compliance Seminar
  • ID: 5822175

Product safety makes headlines every day - and the impact on a company’s image, consumer confidence, and Wall Street’s opinion is profound. Are you confident your current pharmacovigilance operations will meet the latest US, EU and UK expectations for compliance and keep your products on the market? Do you understand the processes needed to perform adequate risk assessment? 

Not knowing which systems and processes you must have in place for your own safety reporting could mean you miss an important issue with significant consequences for your product. You must be sure you have the understanding you need to avoid product recall, are able to work to international standards and have implemented regulatory requirements for signaling and risk management.

This training course is designed to give pharmaceutical and biologic companies operating in the US and EU an introduction to product safety regulatory requirements. The course will illustrate the decision-making process and reasoning needed behind when and how to properly report incidents to regulatory authorities.
