General Information

The aim of the training courses in Work Package 3 is firstly to allow participants to deepen their knowledge of the EU legislation, which is the basis for official control and risk assessment, as well as for their interpretation. In addition to this, the current need to harmonise monitoring plans of contaminants in member countries will be handled thoroughly. At the end of the training session, each participant will be able to use the information, tools and methods that enable to maintain and improve the control system implemented on contaminants in feed and food.

In order to ensure that this goal is reached, the legislations of food and feed contaminants will be presented. Topics that are particularly relevant will be carefully discussed in detail; these include maximum levels, other risk management methods and enforcements, sampling, analysis and data interpretation, as well as accreditation and quality requirements, HACCP principles, guidance documents, risk assessments and recommendations for occurrence data collection will further clarify the roles of national authorities, the Commission and EFSA.

This training activity is mainly addressed to staff of competent authorities involved in official controls of contaminants in food and feed.

It will be 15 three – day – training sessions in Berlin, Prague, Brussels, Sofia and Rome.
