Who will watch the watch-guards?

Nick sent us this interesting document and his comments:

Quis custodiet ipsos custodies?

Has anybody noticed this?


Regulator is the regulated!
And look at pages 11 and 12 of the attached file:

Such hypocrisy!



One thought on “Who will watch the watch-guards?

  1. According to the “Technical Guidelines on Aquaculture Certification – Version Adopted by the 29th Session of Committee on Fisheries (COFI) held in Rome, Italy from 31 January to 04 February 2011”:

    305. The certification body or entity should be legally and financially independent from the owner of the certification scheme and should not have any conflict of interest.

    306. The certification body or entity and its assessment and certifying staff, whether directly employed by the certification body or entity or sub-contracted by it, should have no commercial, financial or any other interest in the aquaculture operation or chain of custody to be assessed other than for its certification services.

    This is how it is supposed to work…
