An assessment of best practices in sanitary and phytosanitary standards (SPS) training for the Better Training for Safer Food (BTSF) programme of the EC – DG SANCO. To this end, a comprehensive review was undertaken of key training programmes designed and implemented by major national, regional and international organisation, including the FAO, WTO-STDF, OIE and the WHO. The review aimed to identify the critical factors on organising training activities, and the criteria for success. The BTSF programme was then benchmarked against other identified good and best practices, and finally new practices to implement in the framework of BTSF with a view to its improvement in terms of more effective training and to higher levels of dissemination of knowledge were proposed.
