- Food & Associated Industries - Protecting the Consumer
FAI enforces regulations known as compulsory specifications that set minimum safety standards for:
  • Frozen fish and frozen fish products
  • Frozen marine molluscs and related frozen products;
  • Frozen rock lobster and frozen lobster products;
  • Frozen shrimps (prawns), langoustines and crabs;
  • Smoked Snoek.
  • Canned meat and fish.
These foods present a high risk to consumers in the event of spoilage or contamination.
All compulsory specifications are aligned with international guidelines and practices and continuously harmonized with the Standards and Codes of Practice of the Codex Alimentarius Commission. They apply to all products sold in South Africa (whether locally produced or imported) and exported to other countries.
