EU: Promises, Promises !

SAV Comment – “proposed legal provisions at EU level”.

We have witnessed their ‘provisions at EU level’ when it comes to implementing Regulation 1/2005 for the alleged protection of animals during transport.  This being their own ‘legal provisions’ which in reality are simply weasel words that mean nothing.  Lets hope they do something better than they do with implementing the rules and enforcement for Regulation 1/2005; although we very much doubt it.

Today in Brussels, EU-level experts, national competent authorities and medicines agencies, veterinarians, farmers and industry will gather to discuss data collection on consumption of veterinary antimicrobials in Europe – achievements, challenges and the way forward.

The main aim of the workshop, organised by the European Commission in collaboration with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) is to explore how data on antimicrobial consumption in animals can be improved (sales and use per species). The discussion will also provide technical input for proposed legal provisions at EU level.

During the workshop, the Commission will present the state of play of its strategy to combat Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), including information on the AMR-related provisions under the revision of the legal framework on veterinary medicines. The EMA will present the European Surveillance of Veterinary Antimicrobial Consumption (ESVAC) Strategy 2016-2020, the ESVAC sales data and the draft guidance for collection of data on antimicrobial use by animal species. See the full agenda of the workshop here <http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/health_food-safety/amr/docs/ev_20170426_ag.pdf> .

 

Background

 

The Commission is committed to combatting AMR through a ‘One-Health’ approach involving actions on human health, animal health, the environment and food safety as well as on antimicrobial research and development. Curbing antimicrobial consumption amongst animals is a vital part of the fight against AMR.

 

With regard to this consumption, 30 European countries currently voluntarily report on annual sales data. Inspired by the ESVAC blueprint, the Commission’s proposal for a new Regulation on veterinary medicinal products provides for compulsory collection of data on sales and use of veterinary antimicrobials. ESVAC is already focusing on the systems and procedures necessary to manage this proposed requirement.

  1. However, as we can see: their way of action is wrong and by that way their Conclussions will be wrong too, because Animals are not human food as with , as without antibioticas, hormones etc. People will die from chronic illness more and more ( because saturated fat, cholesterol, L-carnitin Trimethylamins in meat, milk, eggs, not because antibiotics in them ) until they stop exploiting and killing animals . Mortality rates are higher and higher, look at WHO
    official website, Pollution and destruction of nature is more and more, climatic changes are getting faster and faster and more difficult, just because unreasonable people prefer their stomachs rather than life Maybe they deserve Death by Cardiocerebrovascular stroke, cancers, pulmonaak deseases, diabetes etc, but we and animals not
