EU QPPV and Deputy QPPV

The Guideline on good pharmacovigilance practices (GVP) Module 1 – Pharmacovigilance systems and their quality systems, states that as part of the pharmacovigilance system, the market authorisation holder must have permanently and continuously at its disposal, an appropriately qualified person responsible for pharmacovigilance in the EU (EU QPPV).

Local QPPV/ Named Safety Contacts
(NSC) across global territories

Competent authorities in Member States are legally provided with an option to request the nomination of a pharmacovigilance contact person at national level reporting to the EU QPPV. A contact person at national level may also be nominated as the local QPPV. Member States that do not stipulate a local QPPV would require an NSC to cover local surveillance activities. Local QPPVs are also mandated in national legislation within certain third countries.

The PSMF is described in GVP Module II. It is a modular document that outlines the various aspects of the pharmacovigilance system of a Marketing Authorisation Holder (MAH). The document must be maintained in an up to date state and can be requested by a competent authority within a 7 calendar day deadline for delivery.
