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.

Featured Certification

This label is not controlled by a single certification agency. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) contains dioxins that are created in the production process. Dioxins are carcinogenic and associated with birth defects. L.L. Bean, Wal-Mart, Nike, Microsoft, Ikea, and Johnson and Johnson, and dozens of other major companies, have either phased out PVC, or are in the process of doing so. PVC is currently found in thousands of products from children's toys, to building materials, to inflatable boat coatings.
