Healthcare professionals: how to report an adverse health event
You are a healthcare professional and you wish to report an adverse event occurring in a patient following consumption of a food supplement, a novel food, a fortified food or a food product for a special dietary use? The nutrivigilance scheme was created in order to enable the reporting of adverse events in conjunction with these products. The reports registered by ANSES fully ensure consumer anonymity. They are analysed by the Agency’s nutritional vigilance unit with the support of its experts.
You can also report adverse events occurring after consumption of these types of products via the Reporting portal of the French Ministry of Social Affairs and Health (in French).
You are a veterinarian, pharmacist or physician and you wish to report an adverse event following administration of a veterinary medicinal product to an animal (the event may involve the treated animal or the person having administered the treatment).
