Recent changes in the Origin Green template require members to specifically focus on key risk raw material in the target area of raw material sourcing. To underpin the integrity of the scheme, and assist members satisfy target requirements, BIM provides technical and financial support in certification and sustainability initiatives.

Processors and vessels can become certified under RSS and participate in a Fishery Improvement Project (FIP). BIM is hosting workshops on the Raw Material Certification and FIPs for both processors and supplying vessels.
