Since the mid-1990 s, various government efforts have been made to promote HACCP implementation as government recognizes that HACCP is the best system presently available to ensure food safety. Programmes such as seminars, talks as well as financial and technical assistance were made available to the industry to encourage HACCP implementation. However, HACCP implementation is on a voluntary basis and as the local fish processing industry is largely supplying to the domestic market, there is little pressure for them to do so. In 2002, the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources (MIPR) in collaboration with SIRIM QAS, Malaysia, initiated the Products Certification scheme which involves HACCP and SSOP to assist companies take the first steps towards HACCP implementation. To date (2003), two fish processing companies which are involved in export have obtained product certification and are in the process of implementing HACCP in their establishments.
