Global Risk Management and REMS

Providing benefit-risk solutions for medicinal products

Global regulatory authorities may require pharmaceutical companies to include risk management activities as part of their pharmacovigilance system to obtain, or retain, marketing authorization for their medicinal product. The risk management system plays a critical role in positively impacting the benefit-risk ratio and enabling patients to access these life-enhancing therapies.  

In the United States, the FDA applies risk management controls through Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) programs. Whereas in Europe, and most other countries, the regulators require Risk Management Plans (RMP) with additional risk minimization measures (aRMMs) to apply the necessary controls.

Your expert partner for efficient, effective risk management design and implementation

Regardless of the terms used, designing and implementing REMS or aRMMs to address the benefit-risk profile is a complex topic and requires skilled experts to help ensure controls are balanced, effective and appropriate.

Syneos Health is here to help and has the experts, solutions and capabilities to address the global risk management challenges you may have.

For example:

  • Do you have an asset in clinical development that may require risk management controls?
  • Are you planning on including risk management activities as part of your marketing application?
  • Have the regulators indicated that you may need a REMS or aRMMS to obtain marketing approval?
  • Are you currently operating a REMS or aRMM program and are looking to transition away from your current vendors?
  • Are you considering migrating your brand risk management system to a multi-sponsor shared program?
