Research webinar 7: Compliance processes in transnational private governance: The case of marine sustainability standards

This webinar presents a research project that examines compliance processes in transnational private sustainability governance, using marine sustainability standards as a case study. This webinar, held on 22nd September 2016, reports on a research project that examines compliance processes in transnational private sustainability governance. Based on the publicly available assessment report of fisheries starting the certification process with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), it examines the influence of characteristics of fisheries, the MSC’s compliance verification process, and factors in the external environment on the assessment duration. In this way, it aims to gain insights into the role of regulatory design and learning at the level of the standard setting organization, the audit organizations and the individual assessors.
