Biological hazards data
EFSA analyses data on zoonotic diseases (infections and diseases that are transmissible between animals and humans), antimicrobial resistance and food-borne outbreaks across the EU.
Data are submitted annually by Member States, in compliance with EU regulation.
Foodborne diseases – EU regulation
EFSA publishes, in collaboration with the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), annual European Union Summary Reports based on this data.
EFSA also analyses the EU-wide baseline surveys on zoonotic agents (such as Salmonella, Campylobacter and Listeria, in animals and food), and on antimicrobial resistance. These surveys are fully harmonised and therefore provide comparable values for all Member States.
