DAIDS Adverse Experience Reporting System (DAERS)

The DAIDS Adverse Experience Reporting System (DAERS) is an internet-based system used by DAIDS Clinical Research Sites (CRSs) to report Expedited Adverse Events (EAEs) to DAIDS. DAERS creates a centralized location for accessing EAE information for reporting purposes.

All CRSs must have access to DAERS after site activation and before a study begins to report EAEs to DAIDS. Each CRS must have at least two staff members who have a combination of DAERS Reporter and Submitter rights.

Described below are the two user roles in DAERS that CRSs must have in order to create and submit EAEs.

Personnel Any CRS staff authorized by the Investigator of Record (IoR) Any study physician listed on either the Form FDA 1572 or IoR Agreement
