MSC has committed to undertake a review of the Fisheries Standard (FSR) in 2013. The FSR will consolidate the MSC’s existing policy development process on issues pertaining to the Default Assessment Tree and other fishery client ‘performance’ requirements.
The MSC’s standards and certification requirements are regularly under review, with valuable input from our stakeholders, through our policy development process. This Program Improvements website is a dynamic record of the review process and improvement to the certification program.
This space is designed to involve stakeholder like those of you interested in our program. The searchable database will give you a greater visibility about the progress of specific issues. It shows what improvements have been suggested, how they’re progressing – what’s in the pipeline and what’s being discussed, so you can comment or give us suggestion to improve our work at the MSC.
