We have launched a public consultation to seek views on the transposition into UK law of the EU directive on pharmacovigilance, which makes substantial changes to existing pharmacovigilance requirements and comes in to effect in July 2012.
A key aim of the new legislation includes strengthening medicines safety transparency and communication to increase understanding and trust of healthcare professionals and patients in the safety of medicines, and improving penetration of key warnings.
Comments are invited by 28 February 2012. Further information is available here.
