The Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV) of Germany announced late last year that they are developing a package of measures to improve monitoring and control of the use of antibiotics in livestock.

Both the German law on drugs (AMG) and the Regulations governing the electronic drug information at the German Institute of Medical Documentation and Information (DIMDIAMV) will be modified, employing the available data on the quantities of drugs supplied to veterinarians and the quantities of antibiotics actually applied, which will facilitate the control and monitoring by the federated states.

Also, changes to the German regulation on veterinary hygiene kits will take place so that, in the future, veterinarians should be directed towards enforcement of the guidelines on the use of antibiotics established by the Federal College of Veterinary Surgeons, as well as to the Manual for oral medications.

According to BMELV, specific data on the number of veterinary medicinal products marketed in the whole of Germany will be published for the first time in mid 2012 so that, using different postal codes it will be possible to identify which areas of the country are characterized by particularly intensive use of antibiotics in animal husbandry. The Ministry advised that in the meantime, the department has created a specialized working group called " Antibiotics Resistance " which will collect all data on monitoring and control, analyze the reported data on the marketing and use of antibiotics, assessing the risks associated with the evolution
