During the last 17 year Set- up and monitoring of more than 50 efficacy and mode of action trials for registration purposes was my main occupation. Those studies were set up in broilers, layers, pigs, turkey, dairy cattle and calves, with veterinary and feed additives. The products investigated covered a wide range namely probiotics, ecto- and endo- parasiticides, coccidiostats, antibiotics, organic acids and electrolytes. Further a resistance study monitoring Streptococcus faecium & Streptococcus faecalis sensitivity in pigs and poultry was initiated In feed stability trials and carcass quality trials served an European registration. Market research studies for coccidiostats and antibiotics were completed. Assessment of veterinary registration files and an efficacy expert opinion used in a registration dossier for EFSA were made. Further I was expert for application on efficacy for feed additives. Expert Food safety 5th and 6 th E.U. framework programme. Project technical assistant for 5th E.U. framework programme.
