As the expectations for an organization’s pharmacovigilance system and the supporting quality management system rise, so does the scrutiny of them through inspections by regulatory agencies. Inspections are a necessary check of the systems’ effectiveness, but can be a source of anxiety. Understanding expectations in the inspections not only provides confidence for the actual inspection event itself, but also supports excellence in activities that are conducted every day. The MHRA’s GPvP inspection programme, will be presented. This will include approaches to inspection since the COVID-19 pandemic. The MHRA’s revised inspection model will be outlined, which incorporates targeted inspections that focus on particular areas of pharmacovigilance systems, products, and non-interventional studies. In addition, trends in GPvP inspection findings will be presented. With the rise in faster, more streamlined development of medicines, post authorisation safety studies become a key mechanism for the regulatory to understand the long-term safety profile of a new medicine. The MHRA GPvP inspectorate has included inspection of non-interventional PASS within its inspection programme and will discuss case studies from recent inspection findings. The important of data integrity and the study risk assessment will be discussed for NI-PASS involving primary data collection and how this important process would feed into other operational plans for the management and conduct of the study reporting or data and the important of the data integrity lifecycle will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives

Identify the principles of the MHRA’s risk-based GPvP inspection programme and learn about trends in GPvP inspection findings; Discuss the MHRA Pharmacovigilance Inspectorates experience of inspecting NI-PASS, including regulatory requirements for conducting NI-PASS and case studies from recent inspection findings; Discuss the the regulatory requirements for inspections conducted in the UK.
