The MSC has committed to review its Chain of Custody (CoC) standard for sustainable seafood in 2014.
To ensure the review process is inclusive, we are calling upon anyone with an interest in the seafood supply chain to review, comment and help shape the MSC CoC standard.
We'd like your input
Public consultation for a number of proposals to improve on the MSC CoC program is open from 1 March to 15 April.

On 24 March 2014, the MSC will run a public webinar to engage stakeholders on the topics currently available for public comment. To register, please email email@example.com.
