Approved Improver Programme Fishery Assessors

The IFFO RS Improver Programme requires a number of key components before an applicant may apply. One of these is an assessment and GAP analysis on the fishery against the IFFO RS Fishery Assessment. The following assessors are recommended by IFFO RS* and have undertaken training on the IFFO RS Improver Programme application process and related fishery assessment of Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) fisheries. Therefore they may assist an applicant with the initial stages of preparing for IFFO RS IP application as well as follow up assessments during the FIP timeline.

Following submission to the IFFO RS IP, a peer review of the application will be carried out by an accredited certification body to ensure a robust and credible application process. For more information on the IFFO RS IP application process click here.

More information can be found at the following websites along with a list of the approved assessors for each of the Consultancies.

*It is not a requirement for an IFFO RS IP applicant to use one of the assessors on this list and they may use their own assessors if more appropriate.
