Food-borne outbreaks investigation
1. Overall educational project objective

Trainings under this tender are aiming on updating participants with latest information on food-borne outbreak investigation.

2. Overall project objective

The training courses on Food-borne outbreaks are structured so that the courses will further increase and update the participant’s knowledge of the EU legislation related to the Directive 2003/99/EC, in order to ensure that food-borne outbreaks are properly monitored and subject to adequate epidemiological investigation. During the investigation of food-borne outbreaks, sources, vehicles, and contributing factors will be identified in order to learn how to control them and further prevent new cases and future outbreaks.
The participants will also face Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 ensuring a high level of protection of human health and consumers and Regulation (EC) No 851/2004 covering surveillance and risk assessment of threats to human health from communicable diseases and outbreak of illnesses of unknown origin.
The main objective of BTSF is to provide training for staff of competent authorities (CA) of EU Member States and associated states involved in official control activities to keep them up-to-date with all aspects of the EU legislation and the latest information in the areas of foodborne outbreak investigations in order to better understand the aim of the legislation and to facilitate a harmonization of the legislation between Member States.
