Principal Investigator: Clinton Wilkinson

Key Words: shellfish quality assurance, paralytic shellfish toxins, ASQAP, ASQAAC, FSANZ, biotoxins, food safety

Summary: The Australian Shellfish Quality Assurance Advisory Committee (ASQAAC) committee that represents the Australian bivalve shellfish industries and the program managers from the relevant food safety jurisdictions, FSANZ and DAWR, is the key consultative group with regards to bivalve shellfish safety in Australia. This group has overseen the updating of the ASQAP Operations Manual in light of Paralytic Shellfish Toxin (PST). The project has delivered an outcome-focused updated version of the ASQAP manual that has been adopted by ASQAAC and is referenced in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

This updated ASQAP manual forms the basis for the review of state programs to ensure Australian shellfish is being grown following risk based, world’s best practice, food safety management system approaches. The formal nature of the ASQAAC structure and of the state program's steering committee structures will ensure that the output of this project will be quickly implemented by the relevant bivalve shellfish growing jurisdictions.
