Bureau of Animal and Plant Inspection and Quarantine (BAPHIQ) Continues to strengthen the administration of the use of antibiotics in livestock and poultry

Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine (BAPHIQ) said that since ciprofloxacin is not approved for animal use in Taiwan, this kind of drug resistance may come from the use of fluoroquinolones because of the cross resistance. In order to reduce the cross resistance, BAPHIQ is going to ban the use of those drugs for food-producing animals.

In order to reduce the consumption of antibiotics, BAPHIQ promulgated the Guideline for the Use of Zootechnical Feed Additives. And since 2000, BAPHIQ has deleted 8 zootechnical feed additives to decrease the possibility of producing drug-resistant micoorganisms. BAPHIQ plans to delete another 5 zootechnical feed additives in 3 years, including virginiamycin.

Furthermore, BAPHIQ promulgated the Regulation for the Sale and Use of Prescription Veterinary Drugs and the Guideline for Veterinary Drug Use In 2005 to strengthen the administration of the use of antibiotics for animals.

BAPHIQ will enforce the Veterinary Drugs Control Act and related regulations and guidelines. Meanwhile, BAPHIQ would like to remind you to implement animal disease prevention measures and obey the law in order to decrease the use of antibiotics.
