- This event has passed.
The 24-training session of the Better Training for Safer Food project regarding FCI will be held from the 06 of March to the 17 of March. Participants coming from EU member states, candidate countries and EEA/EFTA countries will be expected to attend the training session.
This session will take place in Valencia.
The objective of this training course is to share good practices and harmonise the implementation among EU Member States of the official controls on food labelling and to inform non-EU countries.
During the course, attendees will examine food information regulations in detail and experience a number of training situations to explore the regulations. FIC is a horizontal legislation and covers all areas where food is supplied to the consumer. The food retail market is both enormous and vibrant. There are thousands of new food products presented to the EU market every year. The course cannot cover all food products completely. Attendees will therefore role play different situations and products to which the regulations apply. The aim is for participants to learn lessons and to help develop a consistent approach to enforcement with colleagues from other member states.
The objective of the present program is to spread knowledge and best practices in relation with general food labelling and claims as well as on specific categories of foods such as food supplements, foods with added vitamins and minerals and foods for specific groups of the population food composition and information, as per the requirements of the EU Food Law. The contract requests the provision of training courses addressing the latest developments, as well as in the implementation of controls.
- Relevancy to daily work: participants should in priority be staff of Competent Authorities, with a position related to Official Controls.
- Sufficient level of language: in order to ensure the transfer of knowledge and opportunities to exchange views, participants should master the language of the training session.
- Ability to share their experience: priority will be given to participants whose positions will allow them to share with colleagues the outputs of the training sessions.
