Description / Abstract:

This International Standard specifies the information to be recorded in farmed molluscs supply chains (excluding cephalopods) in order to establish the traceability of products originating from farm-raised molluscs. It specifies how molluscan products traded are to be identified and the information to be generated and held on those products by each of the food businesses that physically trade them through the distribution chains. It is specific to the distribution for human consumption of molluscs and their products from farm through to retailers or caterers.

The types of businesses identified in this International Standard for farmed molluscan distribution chains are the following:

— farming;

a) broodstock suppliers/natural seed collectors;

b) hatcheries and nurseries;

c) molluscan farm;

d) harvesting;

— depuration and shucking etc.;

— processors;

— transporters and store operators;

— traders and wholesalers;

— retailers and caterers;

— logistics including materials brought from other domains;

— feed production.

Any given molluscan distribution chain can be made up of some or all of the above components, but not necessarily in the sequence listed.
