As a result of decentralized and non-harmonized documentation of poisoning cases within Germany, in comparison to other countries (e.g. the USA, Switzerland, Sweden, and the Netherlands), there is a substantial lack of harmonized national data, in particular for the early detection and risk assessment at the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR).The establishment of a national monitoring system for poisonings in Germany is therefore an important step towards enabling faster and more efficient technical access to consolidated accumulated national poisoning data. Additionally, the monitoring would consolidate the publication of annual reports (modelled on the USA National Poison Data System reports) of the German Poison Information Centres and the BfR. Timely assessment of poisoning cases enables fast recognition and confirmation of acute as well as previously unrecognized poisoning hazards. Also relevant here is the safety of products and the associated protection, especially of children, against poisoning accidents.The continuous monitoring and reporting requirements of such a system necessitate additional and challenging work, suitable human resources and IT infrastructure and an annual budget that must be taken into consideration for overall as well as financial planning.
