General Information

The training activities on the controls on contaminants in food and feed (CTM) cover: contaminants in food and undesirable substances in feed. The overall objective of the CTM training is to improve knowledge, and further harmonise the approaches and practices of EU Member States for an increased efficacy of their competent authorities in verifying compliance with the EU legal provisions in the field of controls on contaminants in food and feed.

The training will be delivered in two different training courses:

Course 1 (Basic): EU regulations and guidelines applicable to the control of contaminants - 8 training sessions

The objective of this course is of basic nature and will aim to increase and ensure a common understanding of the EU legislative framework relating to the control of contaminants.

Course 2 (Advanced): Official control plans and systems for the control of contaminants - 4 training sessions

The objective of this course is of more advanced nature and will aim to improve competent authorities' capacity in setting up systems for the control of contaminants and therefore ensure appropriate and harmonised implementation of monitoring and official controls plans in this field.

A total of 12 training sessions (TSs) for the two courses will be organised during the project’s second phase (2019 - 2021). Each of the 12 TSs will have a duration of 3 academic (4 calendar) days.

The attendance should be approximately 30 participants for each TS, with an expected total number of 360 trained participants for the second phase (240 for Course 1 and 120 for Course 2).
