A LEAP FORWARD FOR TRACEABILITY: An Introduction to the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability and How Voluntary GDST Standards Will Affect the Industry
More than sixty leading companies—representing over USD $35 billion in annual seafood production—have joined or endorsed the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) to draft the first-ever industry standards for traceability across the seafood sector. Now almost two years into the drafting process, the GDST is entering its final phase of work, aiming to complete “ready to use” voluntary standards and guidelines by the end of this year or early 2020. When adopted and broadly implemented, GDST standards will help reshape the way seafood traceability is done by:
- Enabling global interoperability;
- Lowering costs and increasing the reliability of traceability information; and
- Reducing the risk of sourcing from illegal or irresponsible production practices.
This webinar will provide a basic introduction to the GDST, its membership, its mission, and its work to date. We will glance “under the hood” to take a look at the voluntary standards emerging from the GDST process, and we will hear how a growing number of companies are beginning to prepare for implementation.
