The Ad hoc Group of experts on antimicrobial resistance, appointed by the Office International des Epizooties, has developed an objective, transparent and defensible risk analysis process, providing a valid basis for risk management decisions in respect to antimicrobial resistance. The components of risk analysis and of different possible approaches in risk assessment (qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantitative) are defined. The Ad hoc Group recommended the following: an independent risk assessment based on scientific data; an iterative risk analysis process; a qualitative risk assessment systematically undertaken before considering a quantitative approach; the establishment of a risk assessment policy; and the availability of technical assistance for developing countries.
