Improvement overview

For certified fisheries, an expedited audit is triggered outside the standard annual surveillance audits when certification bodies are in the possession of new information that could affect the scoring.

Current status

This consultation asks for stakeholder comment on clarification of some elements of the expedited audit process, including the possibility to include a peer review stage and/or a consultation period for stakeholders during an expedited audit. It also asks about including reports on an expedited audit option in a later stage of a fishery assessment when new information becomes available after the cut-off point of an assessment but before the completion of the assessment.
