Sanitation Control Procedures (SCP) for Fish and Fishery Products
Jan 16 @ 8:30 am – 4:45 pm

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 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 practices.

The School of Nutrition and Food Sciences offers a one day Sanitation Control Procedures for Processing Fish and Fishery Products (SCP) training designed 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.

The School of Nutrition and Food Sciences offers a two and a half day basic Seafood HACCP training designed to educate seafood processors, packers, wholesales, importers, harvesters and warehouses about seafood safety.
