The report, prepared by MEP Anna Rosbach (ECR, Denmark), was adopted by 62 votes to 0 following consideration of the opinion of the Agriculture Committee (AGRI) in October.

The report aims to establish an action plan against the rising threat from antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Responding to the Commission’s 2011 Action Plan, the ENVI report emphasises the importance of prudent use of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine, prevention of the emergence and spread of drug-resistance, monitoring and reporting of AMR, communication, education and training, development of new antibiotics and international cooperation.

The full plenary is due to vote on the report on 10 December 2012.
