Seafood

FDA is responsible for ensuring that the nation’s seafood supply, both domestic and imported, is safe, sanitary, wholesome, and honestly labeled. Efforts to that end include Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) regulations, the National Shellfish Sanitation Program and other FSMA guidances. EAS experts in seafood assist our international client base with all matter of safety and GMP regulations as well as import assistance as required.

HACCP

Seafood HACCP regulations require importers of certain seafood products to comply with requirements designed to help ensure that these imported products are processed in accordance with the seafood HACCP regulation. FSMA offers some exemptions related to the seafood HACCP regulation. EAS helps seafood processors, transporters, holders and manufacturers to understand and comply with required regulations facilitating a safe product for consumers.

Seafood fraud is essentially economic fraud that can occur at multiple points along the seafood supply chain. It includes mislabeling or other forms of deceptive marketing with respect to the quality, quantity, origin, or species (i.e. species substitution), as well as the most common form “short weighting”. EAS offers assistance with countering again victimization of seafood fraud through our audit program whereby we audit supplier documentation, bills of lading and through other means.
