Roche alleged non-compliance with pharmacovigilance obligations probed by EMA

theflyonthewall.com

The European Medicines Agency has started an infringement procedure against Roche Registration Ltd, following a request of the European Commission, to investigate allegations that the company has failed to comply with pharmacovigilance obligations in relation to its 19 centrally authorized medicines. The initiation of the infringement procedure follows a pharmacovigilance inspection carried out in 2012 by the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, which identified serious shortcomings of Roche’s pharmacovigilance processes. The start of this procedure means that the Agency will further investigate the allegations against Roche, though it does not prejudge the outcome of the investigation. The Agency will report the outcome of its investigation to the European Commission who may impose fines or periodic penalty payments under the Regulation mentioned above if it finds that Roche has committed an infringement of its obligations.
