Pharmacovigilance: The Regulatory Outlook

Pharmacovigilance Team

2012 saw the introduction of good pharmacovigilance practices (GVPs) in the European Union (EU) and since then, the industry has experienced a huge amount of change, including the introduction of the new EudraVigilance system in 2017. The new system, due to be fully implemented in 2019, is a European data processing network and management system designed to allow companies to report and evaluate suspected adverse reactions both during drug development and on an ongoing basis.

ICH E2B(R3): Are You Ready For The New Update?

Pharmacovigilance Team


The International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) has defined E2B as the international standard for transmitting medicine adverse event reports. The ICH E2B document includes message standards required for effective transmission of individual case safety reports (ICSR). Eventually, the need for the exchange of high volume of safety information world-wide efficiently and automatically has led to periodic revisions of the E2B document. Since 2001, when E2B(R2) was implemented, there have been many developments in regulatory reporting requirements and pharmacovigilance practices. Recently, the ICH E2B(R3) and M2 Expert Working Groups (EWGs) jointly developed an implementation guide on the standards adopted for electronic transmission of ICSRs. It includes new requirements that will require compliance by product manufacturers (and the organizations that assist them with reporting safety information).

The History of Pharmacovigilance Infographic

Pharmacovigilance Team
Where and when did Pharmacovigilance begin? Medical remedies have been recognized by mankind for thousands of years, and so have their potential dangers, side effects, and benefits. During the 20th century there were some serious adverse events associated with medical products and drugs that resulted in pressure on governments, businesses to produce legalization and guidance, as well as the evolution of regulatory bodies to protect the safety of patients. This infographic identifies those significant milestones across the 20th century and into the modern era.
