Abstract: The OPEs of superconformal primaries generally do not determine those of super-descendants, but the situation is improved for conserved currents. We consider the constraints on current-current OPEs in four dimensional N=1 superconformal field theories, and also conserved current four point function superconformal blocks. We then apply the superconformally covariant OPE results to general gauge mediation.
