The 10th training session of the Better Training for Safer Food project regarding “Risk Assessment of Microorganisms or Biocides” will be held online from the 22nd – 25th November 2022. Participants coming from the 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 the course is to support the development of expertise as regards the risk assessment methodologies for microorganisms to be used in biocidal and plant protection products. This shall also enhance competences in evaluating dossier admissibility/validity and risk assessment, and will also aim to promote, as much as possible, harmonisation of the procedures of evaluation, and authorisation of such microorganisms within the EU.
The training programme will be based on the best methodological mix available. Theoretical lectures and presentations will be combined with case studies, practical exercises and group discussion.
