As the market for sustainable seafood grows, consumers are increasingly demanding to know their fish are sourced from responsible fisheries or fish farms. SCS Chain of Custody (CoC) certification provides accurate and efficient services globally to track sustainably sourced seafood from the point of harvest, from either Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sources, Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certified sources or Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) certified sources through the supply chain to the customer. This has contributed to retailers making commitments to source and sell CoC-certified products. By becoming certified, your company will gain access to higher margin markets and gain competitive advantage by meeting retailer and customer demand. In addition, companies can manage their risk by assuring customers that their seafood comes from legal and environmentally responsible sources.
SCS was the first accredited MSC CoC certification body and a contributor to the development of the MSC, ASC, and RFM standards, SCS is fully versed in the nuances of the requirements and on-the-ground challenges faced by certificate holders and applicants. In addition, our team of professional auditors has a global reputation for providing thorough, timely, and cost-effective service.
