At Almond Pharma, a significant amount of pharmacovigilance consulting is provided by EEA and local QPPVs. This is a legal requirement for all Marketing Authorisation Holder’s (MAH). Our in house QPPVs will establish and maintain the PV system, on a 24-hour basis act as a single point of contact for regulatory authorities, act as a contact for PV inspections, oversee the safety profile of the company’s marketed products and any emerging safety concerns.

We provide robust and up to date training programs for our in-house, ensuring that they are kept up to date with the EU PV legislation and guidelines.

QPPV’s are essential as they are trained to  identify the need for additional risk minimisation measures, approve proposed risk minimisation measures within the RMP, and  will ensure that the risk minimisation measures are implemented and their effectiveness is evaluated appropriately.

Local QPPVs

The provision of Local QPPVs, also known as National Persons Responsible for Pharmacovigilance (NPRPs) or local contact person, although varying from country to country, is mandatory by national law. The requirement of an NPRP can be as early at the stage of Registration Dossier submission or product approval, regardless of whether the product will be launched or not.

Clinical Trials Consulting

We provide  consultation regarding clinical trials and products under development, with our in house medical doctors  who are responsible for signalling, SAE medical review and review of development safety update reports (DSURs).

At Almond Pharma, our team can support the development of PV systems and prepare associated documentation for clients.
