Tenders are invited to carry out a:
Critical review of AMR risks arising as a consequence of using biocides and certain heavy metals in food animal production.
We would like to commission a critical review of the scientific literature to enhance our knowledge of the AMR hazards and risks arising as a consequence of biocide and heavy metal use in food animal production. Particularly, it is important to understand the extent to which biocides and heavy metals give rise to the selection and spread of AMR bacteria into the food chain. This information will help to improve our understanding of how current animal husbandry practices impact on AMR, whether further research such as surveillance of biocide and heavy metal usage and associated resistance traits should be considered and whether steps are needed to reduce the impact of these compounds on AMR.
