Monitoring and Evaluating the Impacts of the MSC Certification Programme

Introduction

The MSC has been developing a framework to assess the impacts of its work. The framework aims to facilitate the collection of evidence to assess whether the MSC is achieving its mission and to ensure the MSC conforms with the ISEAL Alliance Code of Good Practice for Assessing the Impacts of Social and Environmental Standards (the ISEAL Impacts Code).

The purpose of the ISEAL Impacts Code is to provide voluntary standard-setting organisations like the MSC with a common, credible and robust framework for assessing their impact in the world, particularly their contribution to the long-term environmental or social impacts their programmes seek.

Objectives

The aim of the previous consultation was to seek stakeholders’ views about the core elements of the proposed monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework for assessing the impacts of the MSC certification programme.

Results of the consultation

Feedback from a range group of stakeholders was received. The input from stakeholders during this consultation is being used to help finalize the evaluation indicators that are proposed in the consultation document. MSC provides specific responses via email to consultees on comments received.

Next steps

This will then feed into developing the protocols for how this data will be collected by the MSC, and finalizing the master document that will lay out the implementation of the monitoring & evaluation framework, which will be built around these core indicators and be consistent with the ISEAL.
