Sustainable Seafood Coalition (SSC) Labelling Working Group minutes – 27th September 2012

Labelling working group meeting: Summary of agreed points:
1. Agreed & Action: The code will be read over by a member of Seafish for feedback regarding tone and format.
2. Agreed: Two options for non-certified route to ‘sustainable’ to be presented to the Members:
Option 1: The wording in version 5 of the Code will remain, with amendments: “There may be an opportunity in future to provide an alternative, non-certified route to a claim regarding ‘sustainability’, at least requiring risk assessment and extra evaluation steps. The necessary process is to be determined by the SSC as the need arises”. there will not be a non certified route to use of a ‘sustainable’ claim within the Code itself. To ensure an alternative option can be inserted as and when needed, a point will be inserted into the Terms of Reference in relation to amendments to the Codes.
