The SFP programme

The SFP programme is entering its last two months of activity. It will close completely on 30 November 2010. Over the last two years it will have issued calls for tenders for around €7.8 million of equipment destined for inspection services in 42 ACP/OCT countries and laboratories in 20 ACP countries. The total number of equipment recipient countries is 44. This equipment is now on its way to the countries concerned. On the services side (technical assistance, training, studies, manuals/guides), more than 200 missions will have been completed over this same period. While these are quite significant results, there nevertheless remain many activities that merit follow up and new developments. To this end, The SFP programme is now establishing anupdated status for most of the countries concerned and, following the recommendations resulting from these analyses, will be defining realistic needs with the project partners that are in a position to ensure follow-up. In cases where no existing project is of a nature to give rise to suggestions for follow up or developments, new projects will be proposed. The subjects of this possible follow-up are varied and can involve matters such as the reduction of hydrocarbons during fish smoking, improved exploitation of certain resources where current poor conservation practices result in extensive waste, rationalisation of the document databases of the sanitary Competent Authorities, both upstream (data from decentralised sites) and downstream (certificates for export to the EU market), and energy rationalisation for energy-hungry cooling equipment for industry, etc. The programme website contains the the missions reports and other reference documents. These are an important source of technical information for beneficiaries, as well as for experts following up or monitoring the efforts made. For this reason the SFP will try to maintain the website after 30 November. The potential partner projects will be primarily mregional but also those based in Brussels, such as DG SANCO’s TR@CES and BTSF projects, and the EDES or FISH 2 projects managed by the ACP Secretariat.
