Shellfish Sanitation Conference (ISSC) 

“The Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference (ISSC) was formed in 1982 to foster and promote shellfish sanitation through the cooperation of state and federal control agencies, the shellfish industry, and the academic community.”

The ISSC is a cooperative effort of state and federal control agencies, the shellfish industry, and the academic community.  It works to achieve better shellfish sanitation through the adoption of uniform procedures (the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Program), the provision of regulatory sanitation guidelines, the dissemination of current information related to the issue, and the provision of a forum for its stakeholders (government, industry, and academia) to resolve issues concerning shellfish sanitation.
