Food safety & Certification


Support the dialogue on the development of aquaculture certification schemes, and incorporation of science-based information from Asian and EU partners into the formulation of certification, and associated food safety and legislation. Through the harmonisation of the divergent initiatives, this workpackage implicitly contributes to the improvement of the coordination of related research activities and its funding.


  • Set-up a Euro-Asian working group on aquaculture certification
  • Map aquaculture certification activities in Europe and Asia
  • Organise a workshop on Asian Aquaculture certification experiences and its impact on product quality
  • Formulate recommendations for future certification schemes that unify Asian (producers) and European (consumers/policy makers’) interests
