Chain of Custody Certification

Who benefits from Chain of Custody Certification?

The main objective of Iceland Responsible Fisheries Management (IRFM) Chain of Custody Certification is to provide an assurance for suppliers to demonstrate that products originate from an IRFM certified fishery and minimise the risk of public confusion between certified and non-certified fish products. To achieve this, a full product traceability system is required so products can be traced from their suppliers and tracked to their buyers.

All stakeholders in the Icelandic fisheries value chain - from fisheries to retailers - that wish to use a certified claim on a product for marketing purposes need to apply for Responsible Fisheries Management Chain of Custody Certification from the independent Certification Body, Global Trust Certification Ltd.
