Project Description

Organisation and implementation of training activities on the new official control regulation under the “Better Training for Safer Food” initiative – Call for tender n° CHAFEA/2020/BTSF/06

“Better Training for Safer Food” (BTSF) is an initiative of the European Commission’s Health and Food Safety Directorate-General (DG SANTE) aimed at organising a European Union (EU) training strategy in the areas of food law, feed law, animal health and animal welfare rules, as well as plant health rules.

The project is being carried out by a consortium composed of Application Européenne de Technologies et de Services (AETS – Link to AETS website) as lead company and OPERA Srl.

The objective of the training is to spread knowledge and disseminate best practices for official controls among competent authorities involved in control activities and other relevant enforcement actions along the entire agri-food chain. It also aims to favour exchange of experience in order to increase the level of expertise on the rules introduced by this new legal framework, the level of consistency of their implementation across the EU and the level of cooperation between relevant authorities.
