The Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference (ISSC) adopts uniform procedures, incorporated into the National Shellfish Sanitation Program (NSSP), and implemented by all shellfish control authorities. The ISSC gives state shellfish programs, current and comprehensive sanitation guidelines to regulate the harvesting, processing, and shipping of shellfish. The Biennial Meeting provides a forum for shellfish control authorities, the shellfish industry, and academic community to resolve major issues concerning shellfish sanitation. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference Project Abstract --- Page 1 of 1

Public Health Relevance

This project will enhance both the effectiveness and uniformity of the National Molluscan Shellfish Safety Program by improving the flow of information between federal and state regulatory agencies, industry, and consumers. The project will strengthen state activities by providing assistance in such areas as procedural and policy guidance, technical training, research, consumer education, and conformity with requirements of the National Shellfish Sanitation Program (NSSP) Model Ordinance. Also, the project provides for research opportunities related to shellfish safety. This project can bring to final resolution the development and implementation of effective Vibrio risk control plans for implementation by states and industry that area consistent with current science, epidemiology, and HACCP based food safety measures. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ Appendix A Grant Application RFA-FD-11-023 Page 1 of 1
