1. The principal objective of this project is to develop and produce a resource which will provide the basic framework for seafood businesses to customise a food safety program according to the needs of their sector. This resource once finalised and segmented will provide essential content to both levels of information packages addressing food safety - both the general safety SeaQual Pack One and as a significant document in the more detailed/technical customised packages delivered as AUSEAS/SeaQual technical information packages. (Note: The NSC Advisory Committee and the NSC Commercial Manager are the final decision makers about where the information developed under this project is available for further reproduction an/or distribution).This resource will also contain the framework and guidelines for a seafood accreditation arrangement.Using this resource we will:- improve communication between all stakeholders in the industry in relation to food safety issues
