EFWISG recommends: two recently published AMR reports
Report AMR in the Food Chain: Colleagues have been involved with the Food Safety Authority of Ireland in preparing a reporton Antimicrobial Resistance in the Food Chain – the focus is national; however, many of the issues are of general interest and may be of interest to those of you working in this area.
Antimicrobials in agriculture and the environment - reducing unnecessary use and waste: This report provides an overview of the use of antibiotics in animals and agriculture, and the role that manufacturing and use of antimicrobials play in bringing these into the wider environment. It calls for three interventions: First, a global target needs to be set to reduce use of antibiotics in food production and that we should reassess which antibiotics should be used in both animals and humans. Second, it recommends that there be minimum standards set to limit the release of active pharmaceutical ingredients during the manufacturing process. Finally, it proposes that there be improved surveillance to monitor the situation with respect to both these issues and to help to inform global standards and targets.
