RFS Member Transition to RFVS

Work is currently underway on the development of the next iteration of the Responsible Fishing Scheme (RFS), the Responsible Fishing Vessel Standard (RFVS) and supporting current RFS members through this transition is a top priority.

Current RFS members will see no change during 2019, but we expect the new standard to launch in 2020. All current RFS members will be individually contacted to ensure they are fully supported throughout the transition.

Further information on the RFVS and how to apply will be shared with members in due course. In the meantime, members can refer to the graphic below for a quick guide on how the transition to the RFVS will affect them.

Current RFS members are invited to respond to the 60-day Public Consultation on the RFVS, which is open now. The public consultation presents a fantastic opportunity for current members to share their feedback based on their experiences with the current scheme. Further information on the public consultation can be found here.
