Course overview

Periodic safety update reports (PSURs) are pharmacovigilance documents intended to provide a comprehensive and critical evaluation of the riskbenefit balance of a veterinary medicinal product at defined time points after its authorisation, taking into account new or emerging safety information in the context of cumulative information on risk and benefits. Regulatory authorities assess information in PSURs to determine if there are new risks identified for a veterinary medicine and/or if its risk-benefit balance has changed. A PSUR assessment can determine if further investigations on a specific issue are needed, or if an action is necessary to protect animal health (eg an update of the information provided to animal healthcare professionals).

This interactive two-day seminar will provide a comprehensive, yet practical, assessment of the main requirements for PSURs in the European Economic Area (EEA), USA and other geographic regions. Content and format of the PSUR will be covered in depth, and key legislation and guidelines will be reviewed in order to ensure a compliant reporting company. The programme will also include workshops on PSURs for the EEA, USA and Australia. This is an excellent opportunity to gain essential information for your company to ensure compliance with the PSUR requirements.
