How to Report

Although healthcare professionals have traditionally submitted the majority of reports, anyone may report a reaction and all are urged to report suspected ADRs directly to the Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring (CARM) within the New Zealand Pharmacovigilance Centre (NZPhvC) using the following options:
• Online reporting or using electronic forms at
• The electronic adverse reaction reporting tool available in Practice Management Software programmes
• Prepaid Yellow Cards available from the address below, and also found in the MIMS New Ethicals and inside the back cover of the Prescriber Update.
• CARM is available to discuss ADRs by telephone and also accepts reports by email or fax. Outside office hours a telephone-answering machine will take messages
• An iPhone/iPad iOS application is also available for download via the NZPhvC website
