E2E Pharmacovigilance Planning March 2005

Issued by:
Guidance Issuing Office
Center for Drug Evaluation and Research
Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research

This guidance is intended to aid in planning pharmacovigilance activities, especially in
preparation for the early postmarketing period of a new drug (in this guidance, the term drug
denotes chemical entities, biotechnology-derived products, and vaccines).  The main focus of this
guidance is on a safety specification and pharmacovigilance plan that might be submitted at the
time of license application. The guidance can be used by sponsors to develop a stand-alone document
for regions that prefer this approach or to provide guidance on incorporation of elements of the
safety specification and pharmacovigilance plan into the Common Technical Document (CTD).
