Technical Report


The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is tasked with coordinating the reporting of zoonoses, zoonotic agents, animal populations, antimicrobial resistance and food-borne outbreaks in the European Union (EU) under Directive 2003/99/EC, as well as analysing and summarising the data collected. For data collection purposes, EFSA created a simple Microsoft Office Excel-based mapping tool to allow Member States (MSs) to manage the mapping of their standard terminology to that published by EFSA. This technical report is a user manual for data providers that describes how to map terms and generate extensible markup language (XML) for submission of 2015 data, according to Zoonoses data models.
