We would like to inform you that further to the decision of European Commission the upcoming BTSF Training on Animal Health and on Import Controls which was due to take place on 9-12 March in Grange, Ireland has been cancelled.
This is due to the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic.
We will inform you in case the trainings will be rescheduled later in time.
To increase or supplement the expertise of the audit teams, they in most cases, include a Member State expert in the topic at hand. Having Member State representatives ("national experts") included, also serves the purpose of increasing the knowledge and confidence amongst Member States of and in each other's control systems, the controls of the products imported into the EU and the auditing work of the Commission. Finally, it is also hoped that it will further the sharing of good practices across Member States. The event aims to provide training to National Experts in the above fields.
