The Primary Production and Processing (PPP) Standard for Seafood, developed by Food Standards Australia and New Zealand, is an outcomes-based standard that sets the minimum standard for seafood food safety nationally.

A number of the seafood industry sectors and the Tasmanian Government are cooperatively developing food safety plans and systems to provide industry participants with a means of clearly demonstrating compliance with the PPP Seafood Standard.
