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 transmission purposes, EFSA created a simple Microsoft Office Excel-based mapping tool to allow Member States (MSs) to map their standard terminology to EFSA’s standard terminology. This technical report is a user manual for data providers (reporting officers and reporters) describing how to map terms and generate extensible markup language (XML) for submission of 2017 data to EFSA, according to Zoonoses data models: prevalence, antimicrobial resistance, food-borne outbreak, animal population and disease status.
