Strategy to Better Protect Public Health by Strengthening and Rationalising EU Pharmacovigilance

Public consultation on a concept paper on implementing measures for the performance of pharmacovigilance activities
In order to harmonise the performance of the new pharmacovigilance activities introduced by the amended pharmacovigilance legislation (cf. Regulation (EU) No 1235/2010 and Directive 2010/84/EU) the Commission shall adopt several implementing measures. Those measures supplement essential details of the new pharmacovigilance system with the more technical details that have to be observed by marketing authorisation holders, national competent authorities and the European Medicines Agency in the daily practice of applying the new provisions.

With the public consultation the European Commission intends to describe the scope and content of the implementing measure which it is currently considering and seeks views and feedback from stakeholders on those issues.
