    Omega-3 Product Safety Monitoring


    Pharmaceutical Product Safety Monitoring System

    Patient safety has the highest priority for us and we have an established safety monitoring system in place to comply with current guidelines.

    Pharmacovigilance (PV) is an obligation for marketing authorization holders (MAHs) of pharmaceutical products. In all aspects of pharmaceutical industry it is important to have the patient in focus and to ensure safe products for patients.

    All MAHs in EU/EEA are obliged to have a PV system in place and to describe all activities within the PV system in a PV master file. The purpose of the PV system is to monitor the safety of authorized medicinal products and detect any change to the risk-benefit balance.
