On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, B.&S.U. mbH was responsible for the project and financial management for the Twinning-Project “Institutional Capacity Building within the Veterinary Directorate of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management” and also seconded short-term experts. The project began in December 2006 as a cooperation project between the Federal Republic of Germany and the junior partners Austria and the Republic of Serbia.

It was a challenging project with the aim of bringing the veterinary service in Serbia in line with the Acquis Communautaire, to support and take forward the activities that have already begun to align the Serbian legislation and organisational structure to the requirements of the EU.

The project had a budget of 2,000,000 € with 1100 expert days. The key findings of the project included significant progress in the field of legislation on animal health, food and feed safety and welfare. The first Serbian animal welfare law was adopted within the duration of the project. Furthermore, the capacity and organisational structure within the Veterinary Directorate was strengthened.
