The main objective of the project is to achieve a better mutual understanding of the EU and specific non-EU countries sanitary rules and control systems in place, leading to more fruitful exchanges and enhanced trade in the future. The specific objective is to improve the understanding of how the EU harmonised system operates and to build trust in the official control system in the EU, particularly on food safety, animal health and plant health. The project foresees the organisation of 5-days study visits on SPS issues for délégations from EU trading partners. The participants are représentatives of the competent authorities of the invited country, ideally combining policy makers and technical experts. During the five days at least two Member States are visited, with meetings at Ministry level and field visits in relevant establishments. In addition, a meeting with EC officials is also foreseen. The delegates are accompanied all along the study visit by an event orgnaiser, in charg eof logistical aspects, and by an EU SPS expert, in charge of the technical content of the visit.
