Training overview

Periodic Safety Update Reports, also called PSURs, are pharmacovigilance documents aimed at providing an assessment of the risk-benefit balance of a medicinal product. They are to be submitted by a marketing authorization holder at predefined deadlines during the post-authorization phase, including a comprehensive, concise and critical analysis of the risk-benefit balance of a medicinal product, taking into account all new or emerging information, in relation to the context of the overall information available on the drug.

Directive 2010/84/EU introduced the principle of single European assessment of PSURs (PSUSA procedure), for medicinal products containing the same active substances or combinations thereof and established the creation of a single list of active substances and associated Data Lock Points (EURD list). Compliance with the recommendations and conclusions of the PSUSA procedures is a legal obligation for AIC holders, also including medicinal products exempted from participation in the procedure but containing the same active ingredients.
