independent Certification

The ASC will offer standards for aquaculture and for the seafood chain of custody. The standards are being developed by the Aquaculture Dialogues in compliance with the guidelines for standard setting established by the International Social and Environmental Accreditation and Labeling Alliance (ISEAL). The certification according to these standards will be in the hands of independent, third-party, accredited certifiers. The standards are designed to promote change on the water: their objective is to minimise the environmental and social footprint of commercial aquaculture by addressing key impacts. Continuous improvement on the farm is encouraged. Governments are encouraged to focus on the same key impacts through strategic policies and regulations. With science and insights developing, so will the standards. Once every three to five years  - or sooner if warranted - standards will be updated to be compliant with state-of-the-art science, developments in techniques and management practices.

Since 1994 it has been possible to synthesize a hormone naturally found in cows using recombinant DNA technology to create recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST), recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), or artificial growth hormone. Monsanto was the first to develop the technology and marketed it as "Posilac" - a brand now owned by Elanco Animal Health, a division of Eli Lilly and Company.The United States is the only developed nation to permit humans to drink milk from cows given artificial growth hormone. Posilac was banned from use in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and all European Union countries (currently numbering 27), by 2000 or earlier. In the United States, public opinion has caused a number of products and retailers to become rBST-free. Businesses using this label are required by law to include the following statement: "*The FDA has said no significant difference has been shown and no test can now distinguish milk from rBST treated and untreated cows."
