Pharmacovigilance Partnerships Management

Defining responsibilities.

There are legal and compliance issues at stake in the agreements between you and your suppliers, so good management of that process is critical.

Why partnership management matters.

Marketing Authorisation Holders (MAHs) bear full legal responsibility for the system they operate both for their already authorised medicinal products, or products in the application stage, but MAHs regularly contract parts of those obligations out to other parties, which can be for efficiency, expertise, speed etc., which is why the need for good Pharmacovigilance Partnerships Management becomes an essential operational necessity.

Pharmacovigilance Partnerships Management is an end-to-end process starting from collection of source data through drafting and negotiation of agreement to tracking and maintaining all agreements current and all team members informed about the responsibilities as these may differ from routine practice. Pharmacovigilance Agreements (PVAs) and Safety Data Exchange Agreements (SDEAs) are common legally binding industry wide formats used for this, clearly identifying who is responsible for what.

PVAs and SDEAs.

PVAs cover broad aspects of pharmacovigilance activities depending on particular business needs, are typically concluded between two parties, for example, product co-development with another Applicant/MAH, distribution agreements with vendors, or service-level commitments with expert PV providers like iVigee, but time to time may involve three (or even more) parties.

Whilst making it clear, that MAH retains the responsibility for the all pharmacovigilance system even if some activities are delegate, SDEAs are designed to guarantee the efficient exchange of many types of pharmacovigilance safety data which can include individual Case Safety reports (ICSRs), Aggregate Reports, Signal Management, Literature Monitoring and others. This data is of course critical for a MAH’s compliance with regulatory obligations and to maintain patient safety.
