Complimentary Webinar: Remote Audits in Pharmacovigilance

Pharmacovigilance audits are a crucial component of any pharmaceutical company’s Quality Management System. By measuring the system against its own procedures and against the regulatory guidelines, auditing provides an unbiased assessment of the operational performance and compliance of the Pharmacovigilance system.

The normal flow of audits and inspections starts with a physical visit to the company, but there is another mechanism starting to come into play now by some agencies and companies and these are remote audits and inspections which means that the inspectors will not physically go to the company.

The EMA issued a document on "Distant/virtual pharmacovigilance inspections of MAHs during a crisis situation- Points to consider" in 2013 already, but in the current Corona crisis, this is more actual than ever before.

In this webinar, Dr. Reinhard Nibler will explain the regulatory background and he will show you, together with Dr. Andrea Striebel, how a remote audit can be performed successfully.
