Training on Biotoxins at FSVI - Albania (18 - 21 April 2016)

From 18th to 21th of April 2016, the training period on Biotoxins detection was held at Food Safety Veterinary Institute of Tirana (Albania).

An expert from the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale dell’Abruzzo e del Molise “G. Caporale” was invited to attend the training period as technical trainer on analytical methods for the biotoxins determination according to the Commission Regulation No 15/2011 of 10/01/2011, amending Regulation (EC) No 2074/2005. This further training has been organized in the lab of FVSI in Albania, instead of distance learning support and assistance made by IZSAM. This was necessary to better implement the method already learnt during the trainings in Italy.

Final aim is to strengthen diagnostic capabilities in the Adriatic area.



Plenary meeting on risk assessment at Split (1/2 March 2016)

The level of consumers exposure to contaminants in the consumption of fish and shellfish products in the Adriatic Area of reference will be evaluated by CAPS2 thanks to a risk assessment study.
