Background Information

BTSF training for National Experts on Feed Hygiene and Animal by-products - National Experts training.

Article 116(4) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 provides for participation of experts from the Member States (national experts) in Commission controls in Member States and in non-EU countries. National experts accompanying Commission experts are given the same rights of access as the Commission experts.

To ensure a harmonised approach by national experts while assisting Commission experts, the Commission intends to arrange a remote training event on official controls in the area of New Legislation on Animal Health.

The goals of the training are that participants will:

  • Understand their role in a Commission-led audit team in gathering evidence, concluding on its significance and formulating recommendations.
  • Use the experience gained from this course to identify weaknesses and recurring problems in their own Member State and reflect on possible solutions at both Member State and EU level.
