Do Commercially Available Safety Systems Comply With E2B(R3)?

Yes, some validated systems can comply with E2B(R3). With respect to Oracle Argus Safety, the current version, 8.0.1, is able to comply with E2B(R3), Electronic Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (eVAERS), and Electronic Medical Device Reporting (eMDR) reporting requirements. If a company is simply looking to meet E2B(R3) requirements, we advise waiting to upgrade until […]

What Is The Pathway To E2B(R3) Compliance?

Companies who are currently submitting reports using the E2B(2) format should already be planning the move to E2B(R3). If a robust safety and pharmacovigilance system is already in place, there are likely just a handful of technical changes that need to be made in order to meet the new regulations. For example, system configuration changes […]
