The New EU Pharmacovigilance Legislation - The Complete Picture Course will be held on the 24th & 25th March 2014 at the Rembrandt Hotel, London

The 15 modules concerning Pharmacovigilance are a major departure in terms of the Pharmacovigilance conducted over the last 5 years in Europe since the introduction of Vol IXa. The intention of the course is to look at these modules and their requirements, examine how they overlap and fit together and what Companies need to do in terms of their legal requirements; training; changes and introduction of SOPs; and the links to other Departments - not just Pharmacovigilance.
