How to apply

Better Training for Safer Food contact points have been designated for EU Member States, Candidate and Associated Countries to coordinate aspects such as participant selection. Competent authority staff from these countries interested in participating in training should contact their national contact point. Interested parties from third countries should refer to the contractor for the activity in which they wish to take part. 

The training programme is open to participants whose application was received from the BTSF National Contact Points of their country – through the selection process described hereunder.

The profiles of the applicants should respect the following criteria:

  • First priority shall be given to officials involved in carrying out inspection of animal identification & registration objects at livestock farms, livestock markets, animal traders, slaughter houses etc.
  • Second priority shall be given to officials of national competent authorities responsible for the design, management and operation of animal identification, registration and traceability activities in their countries
  • Third priority shall be given to other officials involved in design, management and operation of animal identification, registration and traceability activities in their countries (staff of other national and regional units for animal identification, registration and traceability within the public administration or mandated bodies).
  • All candidates shall have at least 3 years of relevant professional experience.
  • All participants could commit themselves to disseminate the knowledge acquired during the workshop within the national competent authority, government- and mandated bodies. 
  • The seminar will be conducted in English. No interpretation service will be provided during the training sessions. Hence each nominated participant shall have a good working level of English.

Priority will be given to the applications received before the datelines, from the countries invited in the session. However to ensure some flexibility in the application process, up to 3 applications from the reserve lists will be accepted in each session.

Once the participant has been accepted and communicated to NCP the participant will directly be contacted in order to make further logistic arrangements and give them further detailed information.
