Need

Failure to deal quickly and effectively with a food safety incident may result in costly trade disruption and threaten the commercial viability of seafood suppliers, processors, wholesalers, retailers and food service providers. The seafood emergency plan was developed through Seafood Services Australia to provide a proactive and simple step by step response and recovery guide, should an emergency occur.

SA has participated in the initial stages of the SSA national plan and is keen to ensure the framework is established in this state.

Objectives

1. Test the draft manual plan in a desktop exercise and introduce nominated team members and alternates to the plan and train them in the use of the plan.
2. Use experiences to tailor the manual further in SA.
