Course Overview

26 June 2024 - 27 June 2024 | Download course programme

Our Global Pharmacovigilance Regulatory Requirements: What’s New? course brings together a panel of international experts from industry, regulatory and legal backgrounds to provide up-to-date information on all aspects of compliance in pharmacovigilance (both pre-marketing and post-marketing) for Europe, the USA, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East, Africa and Asia including inspection and legal implications.

In our global pharmacovigilance market the legislation requires the Marketing Authorisation Holder (MAH) of medicinal products to have a pharmacovigilance system where all aspects comply with the requirements of the appropriate regulatory authority. As more MAHs work globally it is increasingly important that they understand local differences in requirements for compliance around the world including inspection procedures and legal implications.

Please note, the course dates and programme may be subject to change.
