Food Safety

The Zoonoses Monitoring Directive 2003/99/EC improved the system for monitoring and collection of information on zoonoses, in place since 1992, through better data comparability, cover of additional zoonoses, of antimicrobial resistance and of foodborne outbreaks.

The annual reports of the EU countries and the Community summary reports, jointly prepared by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) are available here.

EU countries should accordingly report annually the results of the following monitoring:
