GENERAL INFORMATION

The BTSF Contract on the Organic Farming Scheme (CHAFEA/2015/96/01) aims at organising and implementing 14 three-day training sessions. The first phase was successfully concluded. We entered the second phase that runs from 2018 till 2020 in different EU locations. A total of 425 participants from the Competent Authorities of EU Member States, Candidate Countries, and selected non-EU countries are expected to be trained.


OBJECTIVES

The training courses aim at further improving the knowledge of the control requirements for organic products by bringing together participants from different Member States and other invited countries and to allow the exchange of experience and disseminate best practices for control activities and procedures.

Thereby, the programme will aim at ensuring consistent and rigorous implementation of the regulatory requirements and contributing to increase the effectiveness of the control activities implemented by the staff of competent authorities and of private bodies who are in charge of verifying the compliance of organic production and labelling of organic products with the EU legislative requirements.


TARGETED PUBLIC

The profiles of the applicants should respect the following criteria:

• Be staff of the Competent Authorities involved in official control activities for organic production and labelling of organic products and/or in their planning and coordination, as well as field inspectors in those authorities involved in carrying out such controls

• Staff of the public control authorities or the private control bodies to which specific responsibilities or tasks relating to control activities for organic production and labelling of organic products have been conferred (for control authorities) or delegated (for control bodies) by the competent authorities. In addition, the trainees should have the required technical skills related to control activities for organic production and labelling of organic products as well as fluency in English. It should be clear from their background and professional skills that the participation in the training activity will be a key element for the improvement of their daily work.
