Participate in our Public Consultations
The Global Benchmark Tool Process is designed to be transparent and a true multi-stakeholder process. Therefore, for every scheme that enters the Benchmark Process and reaches step 5 of the process, GSSI holds a 30-day public consultation. GSSI welcomes comments from all industry stakeholders.

Join an Expert Working Group
For the development of GSSI’s tools, we convene multi-stakeholder Expert Working Groups to inform and shape the products. Recently, GSSI ran 3 Expert Working Groups (process, fisheries and aquaculture) for the development of The Global Benchmark Tool 2.0 and Technical Working Groups together with SSCI for the development of the seafood-specific social compliance benchmark. Please note that individuals need to be employed by a GSSI Partner organization to join a working group. Learn more
Become a Benchmark Committee Member
To ensure the Benchmark Process remains independent and impartial, GSSI works with a global network of Benchmark Committee Members to provide feedback on the process for each seafood certification scheme.
