    Risk management plan information day

    This information day will update participants on the Agency’s medicine risk management activities and provide advice to marketing authorisation holders and applicants on drafting a risk management plan (RMP) in view of the full implementation of the second revision of the RMP template after the transitional period has elapsed. It will also provide an opportunity for an exchange of experiences with this template between regulators and industry.

The Agency will provide updates on risk management aspects of the new good pharmacovigilance practice (GVP) guidance on special populations such as children and elderly. Other topics will include risk communication and patients’ access to information on the safety of medicines. ... Read more
