Menu Back to 12th-Annual-Forum-for-Qualified-Persons-in-Pharmacovigilance


This is the only QPPV Forum designed for QPPVs by QPPVs, now in its 12th year and still going strong. This Forum continues to identify key trends requiring QPPV awareness, input and oversight. This year’s objectives, as shown below, build on past successes and have been shaped by valuable feedback provided by participants of the past eleven meetings, plus many years of QPPV and Regulator interaction at this Forum.

Over time, one of the key successes of the Forum has been the ability to secure continuing support and involvement of key regulators. Sessions have been open and interactive with attendees appreciating opportunities to raise challenging issues in an informal environment. This 12th QPPV Forum continues this successful approach.
