​This protocol for harmonised monitoring of antimicrobial resistance in Salmonella and Campylobacter from human isolates was updated from the March 2014 version. While the revised version introduces a number of new antimicrobials and resistance breakpoints, its overall objectives – to increase the quality and comparability of EU/EEA antimicrobial resistance data – remain unchanged.

The Protocol is targeted at the national public health reference laboratories to guide the susceptibility testing needed for EU surveillance and the reporting to ECDC.
