Flexible, compliant and cost effective

Due to harmonisation of pharmacovigilance (PV) regulations and globalisation, the role of an affiliate has shifted to be a dual role - driving commercial growth along with pharmacovigilance management. The operations associated with regulatory and pharmacovigilance activities have become an unwanted burden and yet now more than ever pharmacovigilance is complex. 

We deliver an efficient and regulatory compliant solution whilst retaining the effectiveness of a local presence. A centrally managed, geographically dispersed solution leverages our expertise and technology infrastructure. This flexible outsourced solution means you get the skilled resources when you need them and maintain the essential oversight into what is happening locally. 

ICON has a proven record (see Case Study below) in delivering projects within the affiliate model across Asia, Pacific, Europe, North and South America, Middle East and Africa along with over 99% compliance in ICSRs submissions.
