The certification model is a robust, common sense, practical and cost-effective approach and allows Icelandic fisheries to meet the FAO criteria for credible certification. This programme also utilizes a certifier who is accredited to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) by an International Accreditation Forum member. The programme has received a recognition by Global Seafood Sustainable Initiative (GSSI). The result is a model that is practical, verifiable, transparent and incorporates the criteria and procedures outlined in the FAO Code and Guidelines.
