GSSI’s Scope of Recognition

Once a scheme is formally and publicly announced as ‘GSSI Recognised’, it means the scheme is in alignment with all applicable Essential Components of the Global Benchmark Tool. The number of Supplementary Components, which are voluntarily applied for, varies for each scheme. GSSI recognition does not include a ranking, nor does it make any claims related to a scheme being ‘sustainable’. The process looks at environmental, governance and operational criteria and how seafood certification scheme’s meet these.
