WTO TRAINING COURSES

More

  

The aim of the course is to address, in a practical manner, implementation issues faced by WTO members related to food safety and animal and plant health measures. Participants will engage in hands-on training on SPS matters, ranging from addressing national implementation issues to the identification of SPS-related market access difficulties.

The course places emphasis on participants' leadership and initiative in implementing SPS actions. With an informal motto of "you make the difference", the training activity will require the participants to develop an action plan, with the help of experienced coaches, to address implementation and market access difficulties encountered in their countries.

An online follow-up will take place over nine months once the Advanced Course has been completed. Participants will present reports on the implementation of their actions plans at a session scheduled for July 2019 in Geneva. 

Participants will have the opportunity to attend meetings of the SPS Committee and the thematic session on equivalence to better understand the day-to-day work of the Committee. Ad hoc sessions will be organised to allow participants to network and share experiences with WTO experts, capital- and Geneva-based delegates as well as representatives from other international organizations active in SPS-related matters, including the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). The course will be conducted in Spanish.
