Seafood HACCP Alliance for Education & Training

The Seafood HACCP Alliance was formed to foster a more uniform and current national education, training and technical assistance program for the seafood industry and the federal, state and local food inspectors. The Alliance approach is to develop basic education manuals and conduct a series of 'train-the-trainer' courses to help prepare a cadre of instructors across the nation. Likewise, through continuing project funds from the National Sea Grant College Program, they plan to provide a number of actual training sessions for the regional industries and inspectors. To assure regional coverage, the Alliance is organized in alignment with the regional affiliates of the Association of Food & Drug Officals (AFDO). They are represented by pertinent agencies, academic expertise and industry. The Alliance does not develop or direct policy or commercial response. The Alliance role is strictly for development and delivery of educational programs.
