In 2014, the MSC has committed to review its Chain of Custody (CoC) program. The year long review allows the MSC to evaluate its CoC standard and certification requirements, and to improve on the accessibility and relevance of the program against new industrial best practice and understanding.
The MSC has released an updated Fisheries Certification Requirements version 2.0 (FCRv2.0) following the review of the MSC fisheries standard (FSR), took place in 2013 and 2014. The review focussed on the assessment process and fishery client performance requirements. In addition, a speed and cost review (SCR) was undertaken to reform the certification process in order to reduce the time, cost and complexity of the assessment.
