We offer to prepare a complete risk management system, including the requirement for marketing authorisation holders to prepare, introduce and maintain a Risk Management Plan (RMP) to ensure the overview of the risk-benefit of the product. The obligation to include measurement of the effectiveness of risk minimization measures can also be supported.

Registration with EudraVigilance and XEVMPD

We offer support to marketing authorisation holders with the registration within EudraVigilance (human or veterinary), including applying for an SME status or a MedDRA license.
