The MSC is the world's leading certification and ecolabelling program for sustainable seafood. The MSC Chain of Custody Standard for seafood traceability ensures that the MSC ecolabel is only displayed on seafood from an MSC certified sustainable fishery. If a fishery is certified as meeting the MSC environmental standard for sustainable fishing, use of the MSC ecolabel on seafood products is permitted only where there has been independent verification that the product originated from a certified fishery. An independent certification against the Chain of Custody Standard provides this verification. All parties that handle MSC product along the chain must be MSC Chain of Custody Certified in order for the product to continue to be MSC certified. If at any point along the chain, it is handled by a non-MSC certified company the product is no longer MSC certified.
