The General objective of BTSF is to ensure a high level of consumer protection throughout the EU internal market and to increase levels of trade in safe food across the globe by the implementation of efficient, objective and adequate official controls. This objective is achieved by training the staff of the competent authorities, offering a better network and on-going dialogue with partners from both within, and outside, the European Union, thus contributing to a high level of expertise and competence.
The specific objectives of the BTSF training activities on TRACES are to train staff involved in official control activities so as to keep them up-to-date with the use of the EU Trade Control and Expert System (TRACES).
Thereby, the programme will aim at ensuring a harmonised use of TRACES, taking into account the latest updates available. As TRACES is an IT tool in continuous development, the programme will also be flexible and able to adapt its contents to the new upcoming possibilities of the system.
Both the private and the public sector will benefit from a more harmonised use of TRACES and a deeper knowledge on the system by staff responsible for the official controls: better cooperation with customs, statistical data available, reduction of administrative work, faster clearance of the consignment at the border, etc.
