Why is it important to have a Standard?

Implementing traceability systems can be complex and challenging; it requires collaboration among all actors of a supply chain. A standard provides a clear framework for everyone to follow, easing the burden of implementation throughout the supply chain. A shared approach to traceability practices reduces redundant data collection, improves data reliability, and makes traceability more affordable and accessible to all stakeholders.

Standardization is also the foundation of technical interoperability – the ability of different systems to exchange and make use of information. With a common approach to data collection, formatting, and exchange, technology solution providers can design systems that interact seamlessly, without the need for customized integration between systems. This allows seafood companies to choose the system that makes business sense for them without worrying whether their choice will be compatible with systems used by suppliers and customers.
