FairWild Foundation to launch a new accreditation and auditor training programme

FairWild Foundation has decided to launch a new accreditation and auditor training programme for the FairWild certification bodies. 

According to FairWild Board member and accreditation co-ordinator Elisabeth Rüegg, “The decision to accredit additional qualified certification bodies will allow the FairWild scheme to be offered worldwide, and give wild-collection operators more options over which certifier they work with. 

As Rüegg outlined during the presentation at the Biofach in February, FairWild Foundation is now open to enquiries from certification bodies interested to become accredited for the certification scheme. Phase 1 of the accreditation programme in 2017 involves pilots with applicant certifiers, with a full system anticipated to be in place by January 2018.
