Navigating global pharmacovigilance (PV) trends and post marketing safety requirements present complex, multifaceted challenges due to diverse regulatory frameworks and varying levels of healthcare infrastructure across different regions. Several key challenges arise when trying to ensure compliance in pharmacovigilance on a global scale.
Various healthcare authorities in different countries may have differences in the requirements for PV activities, adverse event reporting systems & timelines, and data submission formats. Understanding and adhering to these unique regulations can be challenging for companies, particularly for those that operate in different markets or are looking to penetrate unfamiliar/new markets. Reporting of adverse events involves the submission of detailed and complex data to authorities who may have different requirements for content, format, and timelines that can hinder the standardization of reporting practices. Furthermore, different data protection laws and regulations exist across regions i.e., European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Thus, it is important to balance the need for collecting and sharing sensitive patient information for PV and while respecting the intricate privacy laws. Another common challenge that companies face is ensuring that dedicated resources are available across all countries while meeting local requirements- as some countries may require local representation or support.
These are only some of the key challenges that pharmaceutical companies may face when navigating global PV regulations and post marketing safety requirements. Navigating these challenges requires a comprehensive understanding of global PV regulations and a robust compliance infrastructure. Therefore, partnering with the right consultants and experts who have experience with dynamic PV regulations is essential in order to establish standardized processes that maintain patient safety while meeting the unique requirements of each jurisdiction.
