EudraVigilance (EV)



E-Reporting to Member States



The EU-RMP Annex 1 is the structured electronic representation of the EU Risk Management Plan as referred to in Guideline on good pharmacovigilance practices (GVP) Module V – Risk management systems  (Doc.Ref. EMA/838713/2011)

The template for the electronic representation is also referred to as "Interface between EU-RMP and EudraVigilance" with two main purposes. Firstly, it facilitates the monitoring of identified and potential risks and missing information in relation to suspected adverse reactions reported to EudraVigilance for centrally authorised medicinal products in line with Regulation No. 726/2004. The EU-RMP Annex 1 also supports the monitoring of risk management activities by means of the European Pharmacovigilance Issues Tracking Tool (EPITT).
Both EudraVigilance and EPITT are accessible to all Medicines Regulatory Agencies in the EEA and the European Medicines Agency.
EU-RMP Annex I (version 5): Interface between EU-RMP and EudraVigilance is available in three different versions to suit your operating system:

The EU-RMP Annex 1 is set up as a form in Visual Basic. Following completion of the form an XML file will be generated. For further guidance please consult the user manual available at the bottom of this page. This XML file should be sent via EudraLink to

As of August 2013, the content of the template of the EU-RMP Annex 1 has been simplified and improved to capture the core elements of the RMP (i.e. risks, pharmacovigilance and risk minimisation activities, interactions), in addition to some basic administrative information. Please be advised that, from this date, the previous RMP Annex 1 template will not be valid for data submission.
