In cooperation with the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO), the Seafood HACCP Alliance has developed a uniform and cost-effective training program for importers, processors and distributors of fish and fishery products. The training assists with the implementation of Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) programs in commercial and regulatory settings. AFDO maintains the formal protocol for all recognized training courses, a list of approved trainers and courses, and applications for courses. The training protocol assures standard training to suit FDA expectations that are recognized and recorded with certifications issued by AFDO.
