independent Certification

The MSC Chain of Custody standard for seafood traceability ensures that the MSC label is only displayed on seafood from a MSC certified sustainable fishery. If a fishery is certified as meeting the MSC environmental standard for sustainable fishing, use of the MSC ecolabel on seafood products is permitted only where there has been independent verification that the product originated from a certified fishery. An independent certification against the Chain of Custody standard provides this verification. The MSC standard has 3 overarching principles that every fishery must prove that it meets: Principle 1: Sustainable fish stocks. The fishing activity must be at a level which is sustainable for the fish population. Any certified fishery must operate so that fishing can continue indefinitely and is not overexploiting the resources. Principle 2: Minimising environmental impact. Fishing operations should be managed to maintain the structure, productivity, function and diversity of the ecosystem on which the fishery depends. Principle 3: Effective management. The fishery must meet all local, national and international laws and must have a management system in place to respond to changing circumstances and maintain sustainability.

The "fair for life - Social & FairTrade certified by IMO" certification seal guarantees that the production complies at all stages with the social responsibility as well as fairtrade criteria of the Fair for Life Social & FairTrade Certification Programme.All certified companies must comply with a comprehensive set of environmental criteria: Important aspects of water conservation, energy management and climate change, ecosystem management and waste management are controlled during the annual audits. Certified companies must not be engaged in habitat destruction and should work on continuous improvement of their energy use. Operators are encouraged to perform beyond minimum requirements by e.g. engaging in conservation programmes in their vicinity or elsewhere. All operations have to be certified according to an acknowledged organic or ecological minimum standard, e.g. Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS), FSC, GlobalGAP, Utz Certified. Operations that are not certified according to one of these standards must fulfil the additional Integrated Production Criteria which constitute separate documents and are industry specific.
