Overall impression: 100% of the participants’ feedback was very good or good. (May 2019)

Aims and objectives

The PSMF is now used and recognised
worldwide. Nevertheless, relevant local
peculiarities have to be presented separately. There are even additional documents within Europe. Therefore, the
creation and maintenance of a core
PSMF and the local annexes is becoming
increasingly important and challenging.

This seminar will make you knowledgeable
  • the regulatory requirements for a global PSMF;
  • how to structure a core PSMF;
  • the local peculiarities that need to be presented in the PSMF and what the local annexes should look like;
  • how to effectively design life cycle management worldwide; and
  • responsibilities for content and maintenance of the PSMF worldwide.

Who should attend
This seminar will be of benefit to all those in the pharmaceutical industry involved in preparing and maintaining the PMSF in accordance with product changes and new requirements. A good knowledge of the European PV framework is recommended.
