Training on SPS and food safety issues

Estonia’s main target here is to develop the capacity of partner countries to comply with the sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) requirements needed for export of their agricultural products to the EU after conclusion of the “deep and comprehensive free trade agreements”.

Training for Armenian, Georgian and Moldovan officials on SPS and food safety issues was held on 15-18 October 2012 in Tallinn. This focused on issues such as SPS requirements in the EU, quality management systems and food safety and consisted of lectures by Estonian officials combined with study visits to some Estonian farms.
