Quality Assurance, Pharmacovigilance and Regulatory Affairs

for the Israeli Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Market 

Regulatory compliance  of Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Products in Israel

Marketing authorization holders of pharmaceutical and medical device products are required to comply with several regulatory obligations in order to get permission from the Israeli authorities to market their products.

These include a registration file approved by the Israeli Ministry of Health (IMOH), a quality management system based on GMP and GDP for medicines, and on ISO for medical devices, and a pharmacovigilance or medical device vigilace system.

Furthermore, professionals approved by the IMOH must lead these systems, including an appointed pharmacist for the registration and Regulatory Affairs activities, a QA manager, a Qualified Person (QP) for batch release and a Qualified Person for Pharmacovigilance (QPPV).

PharmaQR is supporting all these obligatory technical needs from A to Z, in order to enable companies to market their products in Israel.

PharmaQR supports its clients both in the establishment and maintenance of the pharmacovigilance structure and in the performance of the pharmacovigilance activities themselves.

The establishment and maintenance of the pharmacovigilance structure includes writing of the Pharmacovigilance System Master File (PSMF) and all the related SOPs

The other pharmacovigilance support includes preparation/ review of periodic safety reports such as PSURs/PBRERs/ DSURs, Risk Management Plans (RMPs) writing and implementation, literature review for Adverse Events (AEs) identification and reporting, Regulatory Authorities sites follow up for identification of signals and reportable events, ICSR reporting, and Israeli QPPV coverage according to SOP 6 of the Israeli Ministry Of Health.  


Qualified Person- QP

The Israeli legislation requires the Marketing Authorization Holder (MAH) to nominate a QP  who is responsible for the quality of the product. The QP responsibilities include control on the manufacturer and on the supply chain of the medicine, and after ensuring the quality of each batch and its compliance with the registration file, the QP is responsible to release the product for sale in the Israeli market.
After the release, the QP responsibilities are not finalized since he should control the quality complaints received from the public and to manage product recalls if needed.

The long cooperation of our team members with manufacturers, MAHs, importers and particularly with the IMOH, enables us to provide QP services in a balanced way that ensures the quality of the products and at the same time avoids overdoing that may paralyze the activities of the Marketing Authorization Holder.  

Registration and Regulatory Affairs Services

The appointed pharmacist is responsible for the contact between the Marketing Authorization Holder and the Israeli Ministry of health regarding the registration file and other subjects such as packaging materials, update of leaflets and publications.
PharmaQR provides RA and appointed Pharmacist services including registration of new files, renewals, variations submissions, packaging materials and publications
