EU QPPV and local QPPV/ named safety contact


Within the EU, each Marketing Authorisation Holder (MAH) of human, veterinary or herbal medicinal products should ensure to have at his disposal a single point of contact, with a deputy, who is available 24/7 to act as the Qualified Person for Pharmacovigilance (QPPV). The QPPV must be experienced in all aspects of pharmacovigilance and must reside and work within the European Economic Area (EEA).

The good pharmacovigilance system requires fluent communication between stakeholders, good interaction between processes, robust Quality Management System with record management, and an efficient, proactive overview of experienced QPPV. With Medfiles experienced QPPVs and deputy QPPVs we can ensure that your PV system fulfil the EU Directive 2001/83/EC requirements for Pharmacovigilance system.
