Post-Harvest Processors

The ISSC has developed criteria for approved Post Harvest Processing (PHP) to reduce pathogens in shellfish.  Several dealers are presently using PHP.  These firms are allowed to use safety claims on their product. 

The requirements for PHP can be found in Chapter XVI of the 2015 NSSP Guide for the Control of Molluscan Shellfish.

The Validation/Verification procedures are included in a Guidance Document.
