Certification of training activities

EQAS-FOOD CERTIFICATE is a quality label awarded by the ISEKI Food Association (IFA) as a means of identifying high quality short courses in food science and technology in Europe or Internationally.

The basis of the certification is the European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning. These criteria are an instrument for the dissemination of good practice and for the promotion of continuous improvement.

The award is valid for one calendar year for new courses and three calendar years for existing courses. After expiration of the validity, the programme can be resubmitted for assessment.
