AUSTRALIA - The Accreditation Board for Standards Development Organisations (ABSDO) has reaccredited Seafood Services Australia (SSA) as a developer of Australian Standards for a further three years.

SSA developed and maintains the AS SSA 5300 Australian Fish Names Standard which was published in 2007 and prescribes a standard fish name for each species of fish produced or traded in Australia.

Reaccreditation will allow SSA to continue to maintain and keep up-to-date the Australian Fish Names Standard as well as develop additional Australian Standards for the Australian seafood industry.

SSA has indicated it intends to develop seafood quality Standards and other Standards required and identified by stakeholders to further strengthen Australia’s seafood industry.
