In September 2018, the Seafood Slavery Risk Tool partnership will undertake a review of our methodology, building on the lessons and feedback we have received from external experts and industry. In preparation, the analyst team have looked back on the first six months to reflect on some of the highlights and challenges thus far.
The Seafood Slavery Risk Tool is a risk indicator tool that provides knowledge and information based on professional assessments and perspectives from the fishing industry, civil society, and the anti-modern slavery community. The Risk Tool is not an ‘app,’ and there’s no algorithm that produces a rating solely from data scraped off the internet. We’ve created and will apply a consistent methodology, supported by a wide range of credible resources from local information to specific, published material and information from various due diligence technology organizations. Profiles will be updated and developed as the changes occur in industry, politics, the economy, and society.
