The Sanitation Control Procedures training is intended to assist the seafood industry in developing and implementing “Sanitation Control Procedures” as mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This regulation is commonly known 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 practices.
The Virginia Seafood AREC offers a one-day Sanitation Control Procedures for Processing Fish and Fishery Products (SCP) training with the goal to educate seafood processors, packers, wholesales, importers, harvesters and warehouses about sanitation procedures. Participants who complete the course receive a certificate issued by AFDO, that fulfills the FDA requirements for seafood SCP training.
