To ensure that the MSC program continues to meet best practice, stays up to date with scientific advances and meets partners needs, MSC policies are reviewed and developed on an ongoing basis and in consultation with stakeholders.
In 2013-2014, the MSC commits to undertake our sustainable Fisheries Standard Review. This Fisheries Standard Review will focus on the MSC default assessment tree and other fishery client performance requirements. The review process will also review and reform the fishery assessment process by reducing the time, cost and complexity of certification. Program improvements included in this review including benthic impacts, bycatch/discards, unit of certification etc.
