MSC Standards under review

The MSC Standards and Certification Requirements are regularly reviewed, with valuable input from our stakeholders, through our policy development process. This website is both a way to get involved in consultations and a record of the review process and improvements to the MSC certification program.

The Fisheries Standard Review (FSR) is an opportunity to improve the Fisheries Standard by addressing issues raised by stakeholders and by our own monitoring and evaluation processes, and to incorporate widely accepted new science or fisheries management best practice.
