1.6. Public Access to EudraVigilance

The adrreport.eu web portal is the gateway to access information from EudraVigilance. This is of specific interest for stakeholder group II, i.e., healthcare professionals and the public.

Since as already mentioned not all data elements can be made available publicly, the following table gives an overview of data elements released for stakeholder group II and from which section of the database.

Table 3: Overview of accessible data elements for stakeholder group II (HCPs, public) and respective EudraVigilance sections and explanatory notes (adapted from EudraVigilance access policy and EudraVigilance User Manual for online access (Version 2.0))

Users can search by defined parameters (e.g. product (medicines), active substance, reaction, age group, gender, time period)

There are ‘Download’ and ‘Print’ functions for search results. This might be a summary or individual reports based on defined data elements ensuring compliance with personal data protection legislation. Users are provided with clear guidance on interpretation of the data.

Of the presently 272 data elements per report, for stakeholder group II access will be granted to 53 of the data elements.

It also needs to be recognised that not all data elements of ICSRs are always completed. This means that although access is provided to certain data elements, information may not always be available given the type of the report or the primary source of the information.

Public access to aggregated EudraVigilance data: In November 2017 public access via www.adrreports.eu was further improved by providing additional outputs such as line listings and individual case report forms. By the end of 2019, the website provided information on a total of 3,724 active substances, of which 753 contained in centrally authorised products (CAPs) and 2,971 in nationally authorised products (NAPs).
