Project Details


The objective is to conduct detailed analyses on antimicrobial resistance data on Salmonella, Campylobacter, E. coli and Enterococci from animals and food as reported under the Directive 2003/99/EC (Zoonoses Directive) in 2008.

The analyses will focus on descriptive analyses of antimicrobial resistance development among Salmonella, Campylobacter and indicator organisms (E. coli and Enterococci).

Temporal trends are analysed both at Member State (MS) level and Community level by including available information from 2004 through 2007.

For Salmonella and Campylobacter from animals and food the antimicrobial resistance will be compared to isolates from humans. The results of the analyses will be compared to available data on antimicrobial consumption in animals.

The project is done in close collaboration with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
