Calls for tenders for the supply of laboratory equipment in the ACP/OCT countries

The Secretariat of the ACP Group of States in Brussels is issuing a new series of calls for tenders in the framework of the programme “Strengthening Fishery Products Health Conditions in ACP/OCT Countries”. They are for the supply of laboratory equipment for the purpose of quality control and inspection of fishery products.

The contracts proposed by the Secretariat of the ACP Group of States are for the supply and delivery of laboratory equipment and, where necessary, the related installation, commissioning, maintenance, training and after-sales service. Divided up per geographical area, they concern general laboratory equipment, chemical and reactive products and analysis equipment.   
This equipment will be used by the laboratories and technical institutes in the service of the competent authorities charged with the health control of fishery products. These authorities are the national equivalents of the Food and Veterinary Office, the European inspection service in this sector.   
The contracts will be awarded with financial assistance from the 8th European Development Fund (EDF) that supports the programme “Improving Fishery Products Health Conditions in the ACP/OCT Countries”.  

In particular, this equipment will make it possible to respond to the mission of the programme’s module 2. This is concerned with support to laboratories and technical institutes, assisting them in introducing the necessary standards and in strengthening their capacity to meet these standards with a view to accreditation.
