This guidance aims to set standards for data on antimicrobial use by animal species from national data collection systems and to define the type and format of those data. The guidance should allow for the collation, analysis and reporting of reliable, harmonised and standardised data on antimicrobial use by animal species/category in EU/EEA Member States and across time periods. A Question and answer document on the guidance has been prepared, providing clarification and the rationale for some of the recommendations made in the document.
