Shellfish Regional Information Events 2018 - Molluscan Shellfish Safety Updates

March 13th - 13th

Time: 09:00 - 13:00

Location: Cork

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), in conjunction with the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA), the Marine Institute and Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), is holding a  FREE Shellfish Regional Information Event. The informal event is an opportunity for all those involved in the shellfish industry to learn more about the role of the Irish Shellfish Monitoring Programme and how it assists industry to ensure that live bivalve molluscs placed on the market meet the highest standards of food safety.

The presentations will cover a range of topics of interest to shellfish operators such as biotoxin sampling and reporting, microbiological classification, new legislation, food safety management systems, food incidents, new risks and exports. Due to the local importance of king scallops this event will take a specific look at this species.

This event will start with registration and refreshments at 9am and conclude with a light lunch at 1pm. There is no charge to attend.


The event will be held in Bantry. To attend, please register your details here:
