SQSA is a consultancy focusing on seafood safety, sustainability, quality assurance, regulatory compliance, and third party certification standards. We assist in the development and evaluation of management programs for hatcheries, farms, feed mills, and seafood processing facilities. We work with industry on complying with certification standards such as ASC, BAP, GLOBALG.A.P., ISO, MSC, and SQF. Our associates are also sub-contracted by accredited certification bodies to audit manufacturers, growers and processors.
SQSA has been qualified through the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) to teach the following courses: Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP), and Sanitation Control Procedures (SCP) courses. These courses have been formally recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration. Certificates of Completion are provided to students issued by the AFDO.
SQSA also teaches courses in Sanitation Control Procedures (SCP), Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Internal Auditing, and Core Requirements for Third Party Standards. Courses provide updates in reference to new regulations such as the US Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP), and Hazard Analysis Risk Based Preventative Controls (HARPC).
In addition to food safety and certification, SQSA is also contracted by the public to survey products due to temperature abuse, workmanship, short weight, and other quality related issues. We also sample products on FDA automatic detention.
