Pharmacovigilance and the xEVMPD/QPPV
If you are a Marketing Authorisation Holder (MAH) for any medicinal product, authorised or registered within the EU, you need to submit information relating to the Pharmacovigilance of these medicines; regardless of where you are located.
xEVMPD (Extended EudraVigilance Medicinal Product Dictionary) allows the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to rapidly analyse this data to identify product issues, ensuring patient safety thorough the European region.
Why you need to comply with the PV directive
The xEVMPD is a comprehensive drug dictionary linking all products, variants, and synonyms for active substances that became mandatory on 2 July 2012 for all MA holders.
All submissions to the xEVMPD are done via the online portal. The initial medicinal information required includes details of the MA, therapeutic indications, API data, excipient data, SmPCs, posology, method of administration, etc. It is part of the ongoing MAH’s responsibility to ensure these details are updated through formal notifications.
