Veterinary practices are required to declare their prescriptions for antimicrobial medicines administered to livestock on Luxembourg territory.
The purpose of this requirement is to ensure health safety control, to collect relevant information on the risks posed by medicines and to make all data concerning farm animal health more easily accessible.
This information is subject to a regular assessment by the Luxembourg Veterinary and Food Administration (ALVA) to ensure the appropriate use of medicines, in particular the judicious and targeted prescription, supply and use of antimicrobial medicines for veterinary use.
Who is concerned
Veterinary surgeons who carry out their profession in Luxembourg and administer or prescribe antimicrobial treatments to livestock.
Veterinary surgeons must register on MyGuichet.lu and create a business eSpace using a LuxTrust product or an electronic identity card (eID).
How to set up a business eSpace on MyGuichet.lu
Two scenarios are possible:
- The person submitting the application is a new user on MyGuichet.lu and does not yet have an eSpace.
The creation of the eSpace is done in 2 steps:
- user registration;
- creation of a business eSpace.
- The person submitting the application is a MyGuichet.lu user and already has a private eSpace: they will have to create a new business eSpace.
It is also possible to consult the help section on MyGuichet.lu.
The Luxembourg Veterinary and Food Administration (ALVA) offers veterinarians the possibility to declare online on MyGuichet.lu each injection or delivery of antimicrobial medication to farm animals.
In order to access the online declaration form, the veterinary practice's business eSpace must be certified by ALVA.
The certification of the business eSpace can be requested using the online assistant on MyGuichet.lu (see under 'Forms / Online services'). The purpose of the certification by ALVA is to identify the veterinarian's business eSpace.
To have the business eSpace certified, veterinarians must supply their veterinarian's national registration number as issued by the Veterinary College.
No additional supporting documents need to be provided.
The veterinarian must report the use or supply of antimicrobial medicines within 1 month of the medical examination and treatment of the livestock.
The certification of the business eSpace and the transmission of livestock data are free of charge.
How to proceed
Declaration of medicines administered or prescribed
The declaration of antimicrobial medicines administered or prescribed to farm animals is done via an electronic MyGuichet.lu assistant (see under 'Forms / Online services'), using a LuxTrust product or a Luxembourg electronic identity card (eID).
A number of items of information will need to be entered in the declaration, such as:
- the identity of the declarant;
- the identification number and type of livestock;
- the trade name of the medicine;
- the prescription date;
- information about the treatment (quantity administered).
Monitoring the declaration
The veterinarian who made the declaration will receive an email at the address provided after submitting the declaration, and also after any change in the status of the declaration (for example: declaration being processed, accepted, being corrected, etc.).
