The present call for tender covers the organisation and implementation of training activities on official supervision as regards semen, ova and embryos.

The contractor will organise and implement 10 four-day training courses covering relevant aspects applicable to controls to be carried out to verify compliance with legislation on production, collection, processing, storage and transportation of semen, ova and embryos. The training is addressed to official veterinarians from local veterinary services responsible for official supervision of semen collection and storage centres and of embryos collection and production teams, and to officials from central Competent Veterinary Authorities in charge of this field of regulation.

The 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. As the matters covered will need practical demonstration, the location should be close to holdings/structures that can grant the availability of such practical training.
