Food Standards Scotland has today (17 February 2017) issued three shellfish consultations as part of a wider review to ensure effective and sustainable future official controls delivery.
Shellfish is a growing sector in Scotland and our comprehensive review of shellfish controls will help maintain Scotland’s reputation as a producer of safe food and ensure public health protection.
These consultations review the guidance on controls applicable to the scallop sector and our approach to and delivery of shellfish classification and monitoring. They also explore potential partnership working approaches to help maintain the continued delivery of a high quality, robust and proportionate official control programme.
