During the last four years Mauritania has been working on the completion of a Food Safety Program of Bivalve Mollusks, in order to obtain an export approval by the Europe Union. During the preparations for an inspection by the FVO (Food and Veterinary Office) no fisheries or production activities for Bivalve Mollusks occurred in Mauritania. The aim of the mission was to perform a pre-assessment on the status of the Bivalve Food Safety program in Mauritania. The pre-inspection was carried out in order to prepare Mauritania for the upcoming Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) inspection, planned for the second semester of 2008 or the beginning of 2009.
