The present call for tender covers the organisation and implementation of training activities on the use of the EU Trade Control and Expert System (TRACES).

The objective is to disseminate best practices for TRACES use, improving knowledge of this system and ensuring consistent and high implementation standards across the EU.

The contractor will organise and implement 16 three-day training sessions in three or more EU Member States to be selected by the contractor, geographically equally distributed among the EU territory. As the matters covered may need practical demonstration, the location should be close to holdings/structures that can accommodate this practical training.

The training courses will cover the following fields:

  • a) TRACES use at import of live animals and products of animal origin;
  • b) TRACES use at import of products of non-animal origin;
  • c) TRACES use at import of live plants;
  • d) TRACES use at import of organic products;
  • e) TRACES use in intra-EU trade of live animals and animal by-products.
