Initial visit

During the course of a visit to the premises, a conversion plan is drawn up in mutual agreement by both parties or, in the case of projects to be initiated with capture fisheries, recommended measures for improvement are defined, to prepare them for the desired certification.

Inspection
Once the operation and Naturland have agreed on the terms of future co-operation, Naturland commissions an independent inspection body to perform inspection. Inspection covers every stage of operation: hatchery and rearing or capture fishery, slaughter, management, incoming goods, processing and shipping.

Certification
On the basis of the inspection report, Naturland decides whether the operation can be certified. Inspection is performed annually. Certification is therefore refreshed each year.

Naturland branding
Before applying the Naturland logo to its products, the enterprise is further required to conclude a sub-licensing agreement with Naturland Zeichen GmbH.
