Aquaculture Stewardship Council
Certification ASC COC promotes responsible aquaculture by integrating environmental and societal criteria.
The ASC 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 ASC COC certification applies to seafood products from aquaculture.
Seafood processors, retail and foodservice companies can be certified ASC COC.
To be certified ASC COC, businesses are audited by an independent certification body like Ecocert. For products to carry the green ASC label, every company in the supply chain must have a valid Chain of Custody (COC) certificate.
