catsdogs

In June 2013 a new set of EU legislation on non-commercial movements of pet animals and on animal health requirements on intra-Union trade and imports of dogs, cats and ferrets has been issued (Regulations EU 576/2013 and 577/2013; Directive 2013/31/EU). The aim of this project is to train a high number of competent authorities’ staff in order to further improve the understanding and the harmonisation of the implementation of EU legislation on the above mentioned subjects.

  • 10 sessions of 3 days (2 full days and 2 half days) on Control of movements of dogs and cats will be held in 4 different locations

Objectives

  • Providing to the veterinary services and customs’ staff common understanding of the EU legislation on controls of import, trade-in and non-commercial movements of dogs and cats.
  • Protecting the EU territory against the occurrence of cases of imported rabies.

For reaching these objectives, the project envisages to:

  • Organise and implement 10 training sessions for veterinary services’ and custom staff working on issues related to movement of dogs and cats.
  • The training sessions will focus on the subject matters defined in the technical specifications of this tender, in different EU Member States, as per the indicative table given in the Executive Summary. These training sessions have to reach globally 310 participants who will be supported by the project. On average each training session will enlist 31 participants.
  • Ensure communication and dissemination of information regarding the EU legislation on movements of dogs and cats, this project and the BTSF programme, in order to ensure visibility to the project’s activities.
  • Ensure dissemination of the training material which could be used also for training courses at national level.
  • Ensure a high level of service throughout the project’s implementation, in compliance with BTSF requirements, in particular regarding the standards of accommodation and catering during the events.
