Veterinary Antimicrobial Consumption


Recording and reporting the use of veterinary antibiotics

The new application report is available for the year 2023 as a separate data set. The option to submit this report is going to be available for the first time by 31.03.2024.

It has the same content as the current dispensing notification; the only difference concerns the “type of notification".
The report contents are: DeclarantID, year of declaration, type of declaration, Hapo_Id, LFBIS, registration number, type of animal, type of use, annual sum of quantity and unit of application.

  • The updated catalogue values for data collection in your software are available now.
