Greens wage battle against Commission over antimicrobials regulation

  15 September 2021

A new delegated act proposed by the European Commission to tackle anti-microbial resistance (AMR) has drawn harsh criticisms from the Green group in the European Parliament, who are calling for the use of antibiotics in animals to be restricted.

On Wednesday (15 September), the Parliament’s plenary is set to vote on a motion for a resolution on a Commission delegated act designed to tackle the burgeoning issue of AMR.

A key priority for the Commission, AMR is the ability of microorganisms to resist antimicrobial treatments, especially antibiotics.

This so-called ‘silent pandemic’ is already responsible for an estimated 33,000 deaths per year in the EU, costing the bloc €1.5 billion per year in healthcare costs and productivity losses.
