What is Traceability?
According to Irish & EU Food Law, traceability is the ability to trace a food, feed, food-producing animal or substance through all stages of production, processing and distribution.
Fish traceability and the e-Locate Framework
In late 2012 GS1 Ireland began working alongside BIM and the SFPA to coordinate an assessment of international best practices in the use of weighing, labelling and traceability technology and to deﬁne a roadmap for the adoption of best-in-class, robust solutions for the sector. GS1 worked with BIM & the SFPA to deﬁne an industry-wide, standardised ﬁsh traceability solution that would meet current European requirements for labelling and product information sharing and that would also be capable of meeting the future information demands of customers and consumers, at home and overseas.
