   Salmonella and Food-borne Diseases - Zoonoses Reports

Until 2004, the Community system for monitoring and collection of information on zoonoses was established by Council Directive 92/117/EC. By the adoption of the new Zoonoses Monitoring Directive 2003/99/EC the system was improved, in particular with regard to the comparibility of data, and extended to cover additional zoonoses on mandatory basis and certain important aspects such as antimicrobial resistance and foodborne outbreaks. Data from 2005 on are reported in accordance with the new Directive.
