Technical personnel from pork and horsemeat exporting companies visit the ARS location for intensive hands-on training for methods approved by the EU and Russia for testing for Trichinella. Trained analysts receive quality control samples on a quarterly basis to assure the quality of the testing system. Results of the quality control testing are provided in the form of reports to the AMS. The ARS lab addresses questions raised by trading partners regarding the export certification program.
