Codex ad hoc Intergovernmental Task Force on Antimicrobial Resistance
This task force developed science-based guidelines to assess the risk to human health associated with non-human use of antimicrobials and to provide advice on risk management activities to reduce such risk.
Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) Subcommittee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing
CLSI is an international, voluntary, nonprofit, interdisciplinary standards-setting and education organization. The CLSI Subcommittee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing reviews a variety of data to develop antimicrobial susceptibility test methods, interpretive criteria and quality control parameters for use in clinical laboratories.
World Health Organization Surveillance, Prevention and Control Department (WHO-SPC)
The World Health Organization’s Surveillance, Prevention and Control (WHO-SPC) Department coordinates technical work on surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antimicrobial consumption, building capacity to control AMR, and monitoring country progress on national action plan implementation.
Global Foodborne Infections Network (GFN)
The Global Foodborne Infections Network (GFN) equips countries to better detect and control foodborne and other enteric infections through increased capacity for integrated laboratory-based surveillance, and collaboration among human, veterinary, and food sectors.
Transatlantic Taskforce on Antimicrobial Resistance (TATFAR)
The objectives of this task force are to increase the mutual understanding of US and EU activities and programs relevant to the antimicrobial resistance issues. The main outcome of the taskforce is a report, including a set of recommendations for future cooperation in the global fight to keep antimicrobials effective.
World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE)
This is an intergovernmental organization responsible for improving animal health worldwide.
OIE List of Antimicrobial Agents of Veterinary Importance
Find recent recommendations from OIE on the use of fluroquinolones and the third and fourth generation cephalosporins in animals on page 4.
The European Surveillance of Veterinary Antimicrobial Consumption (ESVAC)
This project collects information on how antimicrobial medicines are used in animals across the European Union (EU). This type of information is essential to identify possible risk factors that could lead to the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance in animals.
European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST)
EUCAST is a standing committee that deals with breakpoints and technical aspects of phenotypic in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility testing.
European Food Safety Agency (EFSA)
EFSA is a Biological Monitoring Unit that monitors and analyzes the situation on antimicrobial resistance in food and animals across Europe. European Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Network (EARS-Net)
This is a European wide network of national surveillance systems, providing European reference data on antimicrobial resistance for public health purposes.
