Pharmacovigilance and epidemiology activities Activity area Pharmacovigilance covers the science and activities relating to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) or any other medicine-related problem. The Agency coordinates the EU pharmacovigilance system that connects the systems of each national competent authority, and operates pharmacovigilance processes that support both the EU pharmacovigilance system and the recommendations and opinions of the EMA committees on the benefits and risks of medicines. Pharmacovigilance activities are integrated with many aspects of the Agency's processes, including evaluation (for centrally authorised procedures), post-authorisation referrals, inspections and data-management, and therefore related items are found also in those sections of this document. The area covers: • management of adverse drug reaction reports, periodic safety update reports (PSURs), riskmanagement plans and oversight of post-authorisation studies; • cooperation with NCAs in the management of safety signals for centrally authorised products and nationally authorised products, and of emerging safety issues and (safety) incidents; • coordination of safety communications; • publication of lists of products, including EU reference dates (for PSURs), products under additional monitoring and withdrawn products; • coordination of the European Network of Centres for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance (ENCePP), which builds capacity in the delivery of post-authorisation studies; • development and maintenance of good pharmacovigilance practices (GVP) and standards for the system, as well as development and implementation of evidence-based process improvements and updates to GVP. Drivers There is increasing realisation that pharmacovigilance plays a critical role through the lifecycle of medicines. This includes the importance of early pre-authorisation planning of data collection for when products are released onto the market and the reliance placed on pharmacovigilance systems for the monitoring of products and the rapid detection of and action taken on emerging safety issues. Therefore the Agency will further support the planning and operation of pharmacovigilance and risk management to help fulfil the unmet medical needs of patients. Having finished implementing the pharmacovigilance legislation in 2017, the coordinating role of the Agency in the monitoring of all EU medicines has increased.
