EU protocol for harmonised monitoring of antimicrobial resistance in human Salmonella and Campylobacter isolates
This protocol for harmonised monitoring of antimicrobial resistance in Salmonella and Campylobacter from human isolates aims to increase the quality and comparability of antimicrobial resistance data collected at the EU level from different Member States. It is primarily targeted to the National Public Health Reference Laboratories to guide the susceptibility testing needed for EU surveillance and the reporting to ECDC.
Please see the updated protocol from June 2016
