A system of information on home and leisure accidents is to be set up in the Member States following a Council Decision of 7 December 1994 (3092/94/EC).

They will process directly the collected data and submit a report to the Commission containing summaries and evaluations at a national level of the results obtained, and the conclusions they draw from these results. The Commission will promote compatibility of the methodologies used by the Member States, help finance implementation of the system in the Member States, and process, summarize and publish the data received. The Community financial resources deemed necessary for implementing the information system will be ECU 2.5 million per year for the period 1994 to 1997.
