||Current procedures for compensation for victims of occupational diseases in France are complex. Legislation has been progressively adapted as knowledge has improved and agreements have been reached between social partners. The reporting procedure is theoretically simple: the patient can report solely on the basis of a suspected occupational origin of the disease. Knowledge concerning the occupational cause of the disease is obtained either by presumption if all the medical and administrative criteria defined in the appropriate lists are met, or by the regional occupational diseases commission if certain administrative criteria are lacking or if the disease is severe. This recognition can lead to compensation and health care benefits within certain limits. Certain specific conditions due to inhalation of mineral or metallic particles or special situations concerning the different sections of the national health care insurance are discussed.
