RFS Member Transition to RFVS

The next iteration of the RFS, the Responsible Fishing Vessel Standard (RFVS), has now been published. Supporting current RFS members through the transition to the new standard remains a top priority.

All current RFS certificates have been extended until 1 October 2020, where necessary. This will give members time to prepare for application to the RFVS. All members will need to continue to comply with the RFS requirements and the Terms and Conditions of membership until their certificate expires.

The Seafish Fleet Manager, Mick Bacon, will contact all RFS members to explain the changes that the RFVS will bring.

The RFVS is owned and operated by Global Seafood Assurances (GSA) and Lloyd’s Register continues to be the Certification Body. For further information on the RFVS, visit the RFVS page on the GSA website.
