General consultation on colistin breakpoints

EUCAST is proposing to change colistin breakpoints to breakpoints in brackets. The consultation is open for comments between 6 October - 15 November.

In breakpoint table v 12.0 (2022), EUCAST aims to introduce brackets for colistin breakpoints. The same model has been used previously for aminoglycosides. The breakpoints will remain ECOFF-based following these changes, but importantly reporting without communicating caveats should not be done following these changes.
