The Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification program developed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance, the leading standards-setting organization for farmed seafood, has been selected by the United States Food and Drug Administration to participate in Phase II of the Voluntary Third-Party Certification of Imported Aquacultured Shrimp Pilot Program!  GAA Executive Director Wally Stevens (wallys@gaalliance.org) said the news is a validation of the global organization’s rigorous certification as a path to enhanced food safety in the USA market.
 
What sets BAP certification apart from the other groups in the FDA pilot program?  BAP covers all aspects of shrimp farming, from the hatchery to the processing plant, while encompassing four major areas of concern: the environment, social justice, food safety and traceability.  The standards are independently audited through the Aquaculture Certification Council in a comprehensive process that creates and bolsters consumer confidence, not just in shrimp, but in other seafood products as well.
 
Phase II of the pilot, which will allow FDA to identify technical issues related to assessing and processing certifications, will run through June 2009.  During this period, the BAP program will introduce a new food safety verification process that complements existing facility inspections and traceability with final product testing.
 
If the results of the pilot study are acceptable, FDA proposes to grant products from BAP-certified facilities expedited entry into the USA market!  This would create additional value for farms and processing plants that participate in the market-leading BAP certification program.
