Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

The Pharmacovigilance System Master File (PSMF) is a legal requirement in the European Union (EU) and in several countries outside the EEA. Although a PSMF is not required for products approved and marketed only in the US or in areas of the world which do not require this document, we see clear advantages to adopting this document. This webinar discusses those advantages, the structure and content of the PSMF, and the corporate culture that’s required for its adoption and effective use.

Health Authorities are looking aggressively at corporate oversight of PV processes and systems as a way to ensure public safety. FDA warning letters stress the critical responsibility to establish, monitor and report on the effectiveness of quality programs. A PSMF provides an organized approach to PV oversight of regulatory compliance, inspection preparation, CAPA management and effectiveness, and business analytics and demonstrates corporate accountability to public safety.

By attending this webinar, you will learn which systems are monitored, who is responsible for providing those updates, how to update the document, and how to use this document as a business analytic and inspection preparation tool. You will understand the clear advantage to the PSMF and how to best present this process to your leadership teams.

  • How do you demonstrate corporate accountability for public safety?
  • Does your leadership struggle to understand pharmacovigilance (PV), the scope of PV across the company and the implications for noncompliance?
  • Do you struggle preparing for PV inspections (working with global offices, identifying the right people to answer questions (SMEs), locating documentation)?
  • Do you have an adequate and effective PV quality system for monitoring the medicines you market, license, or co-license?
  • How do you track and communicate the status of PV agreements, licensing agreements, mergers, acquisitions and organizational changes?
  • How do you communicate the results of audits and inspections; track and monitor the status and effectiveness of CAPAs?
  • Have you established business analytics (KPI) for PV Critical Processes?
  • Do you monitor these KPI and provide routine reports to your Chief Scientific Officer?
