Audits and Certification:
SCS can simultaneously certify your seafood product handling operations under the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) "Sustainable Fishery" and Aquaculture Stewardship Council "Responsibly Farmed" Chain-of-Custody (COC) certification programs.
By combining your seafood safety and sustainability audits, we can eliminate audit redundancies and provide highly-efficient service.
Certifications are available to single site, multi-site and group client operations:
MSC Chain-of-Custody Certification (CoC) - Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) CoC certification indicates that your organization properly maintains the traceability and identity of fish and seafood products that have come from MSC certified sustainable fisheries.
ASC Chain-of-Custody Certification (CoC) - Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) CoC certification indicates that your organization properly maintains the traceability and identity of fish and seafood products that have come from ASC certified responsibly farmed sites. The ASC chain-of-custody certification requirements mirror the MSC chain-of-custody certification requirements except as noted in the ASC annex.
