Currently poultry production organizations are committed to defining an indicator monitoring the reasoned use of antibiotics. That is why, the French Poultry Institute (ITAVI), with the French poultry’s inter-professional organizations and Anses formalize a professional network to collect computerized data on use of antibiotics at farm level (RefA²vi project). In 2014 and 2015, two surveys allowed collecting data from poultry farms in all species and production types. The partners were invited to create a scheme of network organization, which have been tested during a pilot phase.
