The ASC is international non-profit organization committed to transparency, independence, and stakeholder participation. We seek to not only listen to diverse opinions but also to represent this with balance in our governance structure. Representatives from the private and public sector—including academia, NGO’s, and the industry— serve on the ASC Supervisory Board and we aim to maintain an equal balance always.

The ASC also convenes a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) that guides both the ASC Supervisory Board. The group focuses on technical matters related to the ASC programme such as the farm standards, chain of custody and certification and accreditation requirements. Members are selected for their technical expertise and, as before, a balance of industry and non-industry representatives are sought.

Technical Working Groups and Steering Committees will also be convened from time to time to ensure the ASC has formal guidance from multiple stakeholders for specific standards or process updates. Currently, the ASC has a Technical Working Group on Group Certification Requirements and a Steering Committee for Feed Standard Development.
