  Training on preventing, controlling and eradicating transmissible spongiform encephalopathiesslide

EU training in this area aims to harmonise the approaches EU countries use to allow the comparison of national situations and help national authorities check compliance with EU requirements.

The training targets officials of EU, candidate, associated and European Neighbourhood Policy countries responsible for verifying compliance with EU and international TSE requirements.

EU rules for prevention, control and eradication of certain transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) cover the entire production chain and marketing of live animals and products of animal origin. They also establish procedures to classify countries according to TSE status.
