Get certified

From farm to fork, supply chains can be complicated as fish and seafood products may pass through many stages. Complying with the ASC Chain of Custody means you can assure your customers and end consumers that your products are traceable back to ASC certified farms and are separated from non-certified seafood. These are the steps you need to follow to get your company certified through a third-party audit. 


Our standard

The Chain of Custody Standard is a traceability and segregation standard that is applicable to the full supply chain from a certified farm to the product carrying the ASC label.
