The present call for tender covers the organisation and implementation of training activities on Residues of veterinary medicinal products in food of animal origin.

The contractor will organise and implement 12 three-day training courses covering relevant aspects of monitoring of residues of VMPs in food of animal origin.

These courses will be held in three or more distinct locations, to be chosen by the Contractor, geographically equally distributed among the different EU Member States.

The training is mainly addressed to competent authority staff in EU Member States and Candidate Countries (FYROM, Iceland, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey), in European Neighbouring Policy countries (ENP, e.g. Ukraine, Serbia and Russia) and the EFTA-EEA countries (Norway, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein) responsible for the monitoring of residues of VMPs in food of animal origin, including both aspects of the setting up of the NRMPs and implementation of the NRMP.

The aim of the training course is to increase understanding of the EU legislative framework in order to improve competent authorities' capacity in setting up system for monitoring of residues of VMPs in food of animal origin and to allow participants to share their experience in order to improve implementation of such monitoring.
