8 Explanation Client must be able to demonstrate that over a specific period of time: There are controls and systems in place which demonstrate that MSC-certified products are recorded when they enter, are stored and exit the client’s facility (ownership)

9 Selection of appropriate time interval How do we select an appropriate time interval? Depends on: » Product shelf life (canned, dried, frozen fresh) » Unit Volume (15kg fish block, 200g can) » Stock rotation (ex purchase once a year) » Client’s internal logistics programme

10 Non-Certified Outputs Cases where MSC-Certified products were sold as conventional product Product should be dealt internally as MSC certified Record should be kept for various reasons – Lost sales – Purchasing planning for next period

11 Acceptable Quantities For various operations and for productivity reasons – Waste is calculated as a percentage of the total volume – Conversion rates are calculated after an annual exercise – Margin of error is depending on the scale of the operation
