The call for tender covers the organisation and implementation of training activities in non-EU countries to improve and strengthen the Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) framework to allow better production, processing and trade of safe food, healthy animals and plants.

The training sessions, organised in the form of workshops (including practical sessions, laboratory trainings and roundtable exchanges) and technical assistance missions (so-called sustained training missions STMs), will be carried out in different regions of the world and will be exclusively addressed to non-EU countries that have a major interest in the above mentioned issues in view of the important trade or potential they maintain. Staff of competent authorities of non-EU countries, smallholder farmers and other relevant stakeholders will be invited to participate in these training activities.

The training sessions will be focussed on the following fields:

  1. food safety and plant health;
  2. animal health and welfare.
