Food safety certification requirements for imported bivalve molluscs

Thank you for your feedback. This consultation is now closed.

How you had your say

We recently asked for more feedback on the proposed changes to food safety import requirements for bivalve molluscs.

The second consultation paper provided more detail on:

  • types of bivalve molluscs and bivalve mollusc products that must have government certification
  • hazards we need to manage (including biotoxins and viruses in at risk products)
  • border verification testing.

The consultation took place from 4 December 2018 to 8 February 2019. During this time, we gathered your feedback through an online survey.

What happens next

We will now:

  • consider your feedback
  • draft final changes to the food safety certification requirements for imported bivalve molluscs.

We aim to make these changes by mid 2019 with certification of bivalve molluscs taking effect from mid 2020.

We will notify Have Your Say participants and key stakeholders when the changes are finalised.

If you have any questions, contact Imported Food Enquiries.
