The Sanitation Control Procedures for Fish and Fishery Products course is intended to assist the seafood industry—processors, packers, wholesales, importers, harvesters and warehouses—in developing and implementing “Sanitation Control Procedures” as mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This regulation is commonly know as the “Seafood HACCP Regulation” which became effective December 18, 1997. Since this date, seafood processors have been required to ‘monitor’ sanitary control procedures used during processing in order to show their compliance with good sanitary conditions and prac- tices.
The training is offered by LSU AgCenter’s School of Nutrition and Food Sciences. Participants who complete the course receive a certificate issued by Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO), that fulfills the FDA requirements for seafood SCP training.
Space is limited, and advance registration is required by Friday, December 11, 2015. The registration fee is $175 per person, which includes the cost of the manuals, certificate, materials, lunch and coffee breaks. There is an early bird discount price of $150 if registered by Friday, December 4.
