As per the 2021/22 Atlantic Cod Schedule:
- A Fresh Raw Material Traceability Form for Cod shall accompany all landings of cod sold to a buyer by a harvester. All sections of the form shall be completed.
- A processor shall not purchase any cod from a buyer unless it is accompanied by a traceability form. A processor who purchases cod from a buyer without the traceability form shall pay the grade “A” price to the harvester for that entire load of cod.
- All traceability forms shall be signed by the harvester whose cod is included in the shipment. By signing the form, the harvester is agreeing to the conditions that are represented in the form.
- A harvester who does not agree with the information recorded on the traceability form should attempt to resolve that concern(s) with the buyer. Where such concern is not resolved, the harvester shall sign the form but detail his/her concern. A copy of the traceability form noting the concerns shall be sent to FFAW-Unifor by processor and/or buyer.
