RFS Member Transition to RFVS

Work is almost complete on the development of the next iteration of the RFS, the Responsible Fishing Vessel Standard (RFVS). Supporting current RFS members through the transition to the new standard remains a top priority.

The RFVS will be owned and operated by Global Seafood Assurances (GSA) and Lloyd’s Register will continue to be the Certification Body.

All current RFS certificates have been extended until 1 October 2020, where necessary. This will give members time to prepare for application to the RFVS, once it has been released. All members will need to continue to comply with the RFS requirements and the Terms and Conditions of membership until their certificate expires. 

The Seafish Fleet Manager, Mick Bacon, will contact all RFS members to explain the changes that the RFVS will bring once the RFVS has been released.
