Seafood supplier Goodvibes International was fined $6,000 by the court on Friday (Feb 17) for failure to arrange for inspection, examination and certification by the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) as well as for selling imported oysters before inspection.
The company director, Araya Yuichiro, was also fined $6,000 for failing to exercise due diligence to prevent the commission of the offences.
In Singapore, upon the import of fish products, importers must arrange for these products to be inspected, examined, and certified by SFA before they are sold, distributed, or exported. Fish products found unfit for human consumption will be seized and disposed.
Offenders who fail to arrange for fish products to be inspected, examined, and certified by an authorised examiner before sale or distribution shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 12 months or to both.
Offenders who had sold their fish consignments that had not been inspected are liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $50,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to both and, in the case of a second or subsequent conviction, to a fine not exceeding $100,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years or to both.
