Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Food and Drug Administration advises that the Office of Management and Budget has approved through Feb. 28, 2017, an extension of the information collection requirements associated with HACCP procedures for processing and importing fish and fishery products. The HACCP records compiled and maintained by a seafood processor primarily consist of the periodic observations recorded at selected monitoring points during processing and packaging operations. Importers of seafood products are required to take affirmative steps and maintain records that verify that the fish and fishery products they offer for import into the United States were processed in accordance with the HACCP and sanitation provisions.
