Social Auditing on Fishing Vessels – Updates on New Certification Programs

Join our webinar to learn about the latest developments in standards for fishing vessel labor practices.

Social auditing on fishing vessels has evolved in response to concerns around the labor practices, health, safety and welfare of employees in the fishing industry.

A number of seafood industry players worldwide have united to develop voluntary, independent and accredited third-party certification programs for labor practices on fishing vessels, which are currently being adopted by the industry. These standards assure seafood traders that the fish they buy and sell is harvested by crews that are recruited and hired ethically, treated with respect, paid properly, and have processes to address grievances.


This webinar will enable you to learn about the latest developments in standards for fishing vessel labor practices. It will also provide you with up-to-date findings from recent pilot assessments on social auditing on fishing vessels. You will have an opportunity to learn from two of the standard owners and SGS on this developing field.
