Keeping you up-to-date on the ASC programme

August 26, 2014

ASC is providing more opportunities for you to stay up-to-date with what’s going on in the ASC programme.

Sign up for the monthly ASC certification update

By signing up to the monthly ASC certification update you get an at-a-glance overview  of progress of farms in the programme, key facts such as production volumes and growth of ASC certified products, plus a quick market update.

Sign up for the farms in assessment e-alert

Also, if you have an interest in a specific species, you can sign up for an ASC farms in assessment e-alert. This ensures updates on the progress of farms in the ASC programme are delivered to your inbox as they go through the assessment process.

An open and transparent process

Through the certification update and e-alert relevant stakeholders are given the opportunity to input into the farms’ certification process. Input can be provided during the audit announcement or the public consultation of the draft audit report.

Transparency within the certification process is integral to the ASC programme. The ASC standards were developed in line with ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice, meeting the requirements for inclusive and transparent standard setting.
