Introduction

This document provides information for the labelling of distribution units (boxes, cartons, bags,

etc.) and logistic units (pallets, cages, trolleys etc.) in the trade of fishery and aquaculture

products. The data to be included on the labels will help to ensure that the correct traceability

information is available throughout the supply chain, both nationally and internationally. The use

of standardized labelling will help to increase efficiency and reduce costs thereby adding value

across the supply chain. In addition, correct labelling will enhance traceability, increase trust in

the origin and quality of the product, and ultimately improve both food safety and the supply of

fresher fishery and aquaculture products.

Standardized labelling will enhance the quality and availability of traceability data and support

the interoperability between information technology systems.

Improved traceability will make it more difficult to trade illegal, unreported and unregulated

fishery and aquaculture products.

The information to be provided on the labels relates to EU Regulations and other information that

could be required across the supply chain.

The distribution of fishery and aquaculture products has the following distinctive features:

— they constitute exports to every continent;
— they are covered by national and international legislation;

— there are requirements regarding the processing of fishery and aquaculture products, and the

documentation of these processes;
— shared distribution centres are used for loading or repackaging;
— buyers and sellers are not always known at the time of production.

Standardized labels used on distribution units in the fishery and the aquaculture supply chain will

ensure that information is provided in both human readable text and bar codes when required by

this document. This enables parties involved in the supply chain to identify and manage the

transport of goods and exchange information in a more efficient and reliable way. International

standards and guidelines relevant to the exchange of the data attributes contained in bar codes

are referenced in this document.

This document addresses the provision of traceability information only by the use of labels,

however other means can also be used to provide traceability information. When appropriate, it

is allowed to label a lot containing a digitally readable alphanumeric code that is part of the

identification number. The prerequisite is that the alphanumeric code is linked to a database

containing the EU regulation traceability attributes.

4 Labelling requirements
4.1 Regulatory requirements

This document refers to three primary EU Regulations governing the legal requirements

regarding labelling. For the extensive list of relevant regulations, see Annex A, Table 1 to 4 and

Bibliography.
1) Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 General Food Law [2];

2) Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 Community control system for ensuring compliance with the

rules of the common fisheries policy [3];

3) Regulation (EU) No 1379/2013 on the common organization of the markets in fishery and

aquaculture products [1].

The need for traceability in the food industry is described in Article 18, Traceability in Regulation,

of (EC) No 178/2002 [2]. Furthermore, it states that food which is placed on the market in the

Community shall be adequately labelled or identified to facilitate its traceability.

In Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009, Article 58(1) states “all lots of fisheries and aquaculture

products shall be traceable at all stages of production, processing and distribution, from catching

or harvesting to retail stage” [3].

In addition, Article 58(5) of the same regulation lays out the minimum labelling and information

requirements for all lots of fisheries and aquaculture products.

Article 67(8) of Regulation (EU) No 404/2011 states that “when the information is affixed to the

lot by way of an identification tool such as a code, barcode, an electronic chip or a similar device

[then] operators using such tools shall ensure that they are developed on the basis of

internationally recognised standards and specifications” [4].

EN 17099:2020 (E)
4.2 Labels used throughout the supply chain

All the information on the labels shall be in the form of human readable text and/or bar codes.

This enables the capturing and recording of data throughout the total supply chain. The

traceability information shall be made available at each step of the supply chain. The retailers shall

provide information to consumers.
NOTE See EU Regulations for more information.

Figure 2 below shows an example of how fishery and aquaculture products are traceable from

catch or harvest through the entire supply chain:

4.3 Overview of most relevant data attributes

Data attributes relevant to this document include the species code, catch dates, quantity or net

weight of the product contained in a distribution unit. Each data attribute consists of a definition,

a title and instructions on how the data is to be expressed in human readable text and/or bar

codes.

This document classifies each of the data attributes into 1 of 4 distinct groups:

1) identification of food business operators;
2) product specific;
3) batch specific;
4) item specific.

Tables 1 to 4 describe the mandatory and/or optional data attributes on the label in accordance

with EU Regulations or required to facilitate traceability, for the fishery and aquaculture products

industry.

Tables 5 to 8 list the mandatory and/or optional data attributes and GS1 Application Identifiers

see Tables C.2 to C.23 for GS1 and ASC MH10 Data Identifiers, see Annex D.2.

NOTE The requirement for some data attributes is dependent on whether the product is being labelled

prior to point of first sale, see Articles 58 and 59 of EC 1224/2009 [3] or after the point of first sale of fishery

or aquaculture products.

Introduction

This document provides information for the labelling of distribution units (boxes, cartons, bags,

etc.) and logistic units (pallets, cages, trolleys etc.) in the trade of fishery and aquaculture

products. The data to be included on the labels will help to ensure that the correct traceability

information is available throughout the supply chain, both nationally and internationally. The use

of standardized labelling will help to increase efficiency and reduce costs thereby adding value

across the supply chain. In addition, correct labelling will enhance traceability, increase trust in

the origin and quality of the product, and ultimately improve both food safety and the supply of

fresher fishery and aquaculture products.

Standardized labelling will enhance the quality and availability of traceability data and support

the interoperability between information technology systems.

Improved traceability will make it more difficult to trade illegal, unreported and unregulated

fishery and aquaculture products.

The information to be provided on the labels relates to EU Regulations and other information that

could be required across the supply chain.

The distribution of fishery and aquaculture products has the following distinctive features:

— they constitute exports to every continent;
— they are covered by national and international legislation;

— there are requirements regarding the processing of fishery and aquaculture products, and the

documentation of these processes;
— shared distribution centres are used for loading or repackaging;
— buyers and sellers are not always known at the time of production.

Standardized labels used on distribution units in the fishery and the aquaculture supply chain will

ensure that information is provided in both human readable text and bar codes when required by

this document. This enables parties involved in the supply chain to identify and manage the

transport of goods and exchange information in a more efficient and reliable way. International

standards and guidelines relevant to the exchange of the data attributes contained in bar codes

are referenced in this document.

This document addresses the provision of traceability information only by the use of labels,

however other means can also be used to provide traceability information. When appropriate, it

is allowed to label a lot containing a digitally readable alphanumeric code that is part of the

identification number. The prerequisite is that the alphanumeric code is linked to a database

containing the EU regulation traceability attributes.

1 Scope

This document specifies requirements for labels to be used on distribution units (boxes, cartons,

bags, etc.), and logistic units (pallets, cages, trolleys, etc.) for fishery and aquaculture products,

ensuring uniform labels with human readable text and bar codes using a common data set, thereby

fulfilling EU Regulations and facilitating traceability.

NOTE Other labelling systems could also address European regulatory requirements.

This document does not address the exchange of any information by means other than the use of

labels

The technologies referred to in this document are examples of methods that are suitable to

provide product traceability.

This document does not cover requirements on the labelling or marking of consumer packaging

but aims to ensure that the necessary information for consumer packaging labelling or marking is

available through the supply chain.

4 Labelling requirements
4.1 Regulatory requirements

This document refers to three primary EU Regulations governing the legal requirements

regarding labelling. For the extensive list of relevant regulations, see Annex A, Table 1 to 4 and

Bibliography.
1) Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 General Food Law [2];

2) Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 Community control system for ensuring compliance with the

rules of the common fisheries policy [3];

3) Regulation (EU) No 1379/2013 on the common organization of the markets in fishery and

aquaculture products [1].

The need for traceability in the food industry is described in Article 18, Traceability in Regulation,

of (EC) No 178/2002 [2]. Furthermore, it states that food which is placed on the market in the

Community shall be adequately labelled or identified to facilitate its traceability.

In Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009, Article 58(1) states “all lots of fisheries and aquaculture

products shall be traceable at all stages of production, processing and distribution, from catching

or harvesting to retail stage” [3].

In addition, Article 58(5) of the same regulation lays out the minimum labelling and information

requirements for all lots of fisheries and aquaculture products.

Article 67(8) of Regulation (EU) No 404/2011 states that “when the information is affixed to the

lot by way of an identification tool such as a code, barcode, an electronic chip or a similar device

[then] operators using such tools shall ensure that they are developed on the basis of

internationally recognised standards and specifications” [4].

EN 17099:2020 (E)
4.2 Labels used throughout the supply chain

All the information on the labels shall be in the form of human readable text and/or bar codes.

This enables the capturing and recording of data throughout the total supply chain. The

traceability information shall be made available at each step of the supply chain. The retailers shall

provide information to consumers.
NOTE See EU Regulations for more information.

Figure 2 below shows an example of how fishery and aquaculture products are traceable from

catch or harvest through the entire supply chain:

4.3 Overview of most relevant data attributes

Data attributes relevant to this document include the species code, catch dates, quantity or net

weight of the product contained in a distribution unit. Each data attribute consists of a definition,

a title and instructions on how the data is to be expressed in human readable text and/or bar

codes.

This document classifies each of the data attributes into 1 of 4 distinct groups:

1) identification of food business operators;
2) product specific;
3) batch specific;
4) item specific.

Tables 1 to 4 describe the mandatory and/or optional data attributes on the label in accordance

with EU Regulations or required to facilitate traceability, for the fishery and aquaculture products

industry.

Tables 5 to 8 list the mandatory and/or optional data attributes and GS1 Application Identifiers

see Tables C.2 to C.23 for GS1 and ASC MH10 Data Identifiers, see Annex D.2.

NOTE The requirement for some data attributes is dependent on whether the product is being labelled

prior to point of first sale, see Articles 58 and 59 of EC 1224/2009 [3] or after the point of first sale of fishery

or aquaculture products.
