The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in collaboration with USDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), announced plans for a jointly sponsored public meeting to obtain input on possible approaches for collecting additional on-farm antimicrobial drug use and resistance data. The agencies are seeking the data to better assess the impact of measures being implemented to foster the judicious use of medically-important antimicrobial drugs in food-producing animals.

The meeting will be held September 30, 2015, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m in the USDA Jefferson Auditorium (South Building), 1400 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20250. Registration is required to provide oral comments by sending registration information, including name, title, organization, address, telephone and fax numbers, by email to Kelly.Covington@fda.hhs.gov by September 18, 2015. Electronic and written comments may also be submitted by November 30, 2015.
