MarinTrust Quality Management System

An MarinTurst Quality Management System (MarinTrust QMS) has been developed to support the MarinTrsut Secretariat on how to manage the Certification Bodies (CBs) that are engaged in the assessment of the applicants to the MarinTrust Standard on behalf of the MarinTrust Governing Body Committee.

The main function of this MarinTrust QMS will be to ensure that all applicants are certificated in a consistent and timely manner and to ensure that the ISO accreditation status of the standard is maintained.

The MarinTrust programme is split between two key components and the MarinTrust QMS has been designed to look at each section and to address the unique requirements for each sector. The current programme components covered by this QMS system will be the

  • The Raw Material Fishery and By-Product Fishery assessment approval process
  • The Fish meal plant certification process

The MarinTrust QMS will require a number of policies and procedures to be designed to ensure that the developed QMS has the required level of credibility, integrity and robustness.
