The MarinTrust IP is designed to allow recognition for marine ingredient production sourcing from a FIP fishery. Therefore a site MUST be a stakeholder in a MarinTrust IP accepted FIP in order to make a MarinTrust IP claim, and also be listed on the MarinTrust Improver Programme Accepted Sites page here.
In order for a FIP to maintain acceptance on the programme, at least one production site MUST pass a MarinTrust site audit within 12 months of the FIP being accepted otherwise the FIP will be removed from the programme.
The use of any IUCN Red List species in MarinTrust Improver Programme products is not permitted.
A claim cannot be made unless the production site passes a MarinTrust audit, is an active stakeholder of the FIP and the raw material is covered by the scope of the FIP. Please review the overview page for each FIP for this information and the Acceptance document for each production site.
FIPs: All timelines associated with MarinTrust FIPs are still applicable and applicants are expected to provide annual milestone reports with evidence of compliance in line with the IP assurance checks. Any milestones that have been impacted by Covid-19 should be reported on as normal, with information and relevant evidence of any delays being provided. Any decisions regarding Covid-19 delays will be made on a case-by-case basis for each FIP via the peer review process and the Improver Programme Application Committee (IPAC).
If you have any queries about the list, please contact us at email@example.com.
