In 2015, the MSC is consulting on the MSC Online Transaction Solution (MOTS) project, looking to identify key benefits and risks. Following analysis of the results from this consultation and current pilots, the decision on whether to implement a mandatory roll-out of MOTS will be made.
In 2014, the MSC carries out a thorough, stakeholder-led review of its Chain of Custody Standard and Certification Requirements. The review invited global supply chain stakeholders to provide feedback on the Chain of Custody Program for greater clarity, accessibility, efficiency, and rigour.
The MSC 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 focused 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.
