Marine Stewardship Council
Labelling MSC COC promotes sustainable fishing practices while respecting wild aquatic fauna.
The MSC COC certification guarantees:
Certified supply: companies must purchase certified product from a certified supplier
Identifiable: certified products are clearly identifiable
Separation: certified products are separated from non-certified
Traceable and recorded: certified products are traceable, and volumes are recorded
Good management system: to meet requirements of the standard
The MSC COC certification applies to seafood products from fishing activities.
A diverse range of businesses, from processors to restaurants can be certified MSC COC.
To be certified, businesses are audited by an independent certification body like Ecocert. For products to carry the blue MSC label, every company in the supply chain must have a valid Chain of Custody certificate.
With nearly 30 years of experience for audit and certification of organic products in France and in more than 130 countries, Ecocert is the world's leading specialist in the certification of sustainable practices.
