Overview: New Legislation & Guidance for Pharmacovigilance will apply in the European Union (EU) beginning July 2012. To assist in its implementation with sponsors, applicants and license holders, a series of Guidance Documents is being written, which will replace the current set of Volume 9A of the Rules Governing Medicinal Products in the EU. The legal framework for pharmacovigilance on Medicinal Products for Human Use has now been updated, through an amended EU Regulation (No 1235/2010) and Directive (2010/84/EC).
