Why a Public Consultation

As part of our commitment to providing transparency and credibility, we invite CGF members and external stakeholders to participate in public consultations of benchmarking criteria before their launch. We also host public consultations during the benchmarking process for applicants. 

Open Public Consultations

There are currently two open public consultations for criteria under the At-Sea Operations scope. 

Social Criteria

The foundation of a social sustainability standard.



Scheme Management Criteria

Ensures schemes operate credibly and responsibly.


At-Sea Operations

In partnership with the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI) and supported by IDH, The Sustainable Trade Initiative, the SSCI is pleased to welcome comments from the public on the jointly developed Social Criteria and Scheme Management Criteria developed under the SSCI’s At-Sea Operations scope. Feedback is welcome until 31 August 2020.
