The present call for tender covers the organisation and implementation of training activities on specific EU quality schemes, which comprise the protected designation schemes and the scheme for organic farming.

The objective of the training is to disseminate best practices for control procedures, improving knowledge of this area of work and ensuring consistent and rigorous implementation of rules across the Union. Bringing together participants from different EU Member States should contribute to increase the compatibility of the control procedures and practice across the EU and allow exchange of experience among them.

The training is mainly addressed to Member State staff in charge of controls of the schemes for organic and protected designations and to the staff of private control bodies to which this task has been delegated.

The contractor will organise and implement 20 three-day training courses in three or more appropriate EU locations to be selected by the contractor. The training courses will refer to the following fields:

  1. Organic farming
  2. Protected designation schemes
