SQSA’s SIMP course is tailored specifically to the needs of US Importers of Record (International Fisheries Trade Permit holder) and their foreign suppliers. Seafood Import Monitoring Program courses can also be personalized to meet the needs of individual needs in your own private office setting. Prospective students interested in scheduling onsite courses will have the opportunity to fine tune their internal written product specifications, and evaluate their control strategies.

The SIMP course does not end when the course is over. Once you have your SIMP CoC record review program in place, you have the option of sending records to SQSA for us to assist in the review process. (Additional fees apply)

This course includes a certificate of attendance issued by SQSA.


During this course we will review: NOAA Seafood Import Monitoring Program Regulatory Overview, Requirements for Standard and Aggregate Catch Certificates, Examples of Chain of Custody Record Keeping Formats, Custodial Responsibilities, Pre-Audit Coaching Skills, Response to Enforcement Actions, Corrective Action Planning, Importer Verification Strategies.
