Stages involved in labelling


The cost of the OCEAN APPROVED® Label is made up of a fee paid to the owner of the Label (Fondation de la Mer) and the cost of the audits (initial and follow-up) carried out by the assessment bodies approved by Fondation de la Mer.

The fee structure has been designed to make the label accessible to all types of companies.

For more information, please consult the rules of operation or contact Fondation de la Mer.

Frequency of labelling sessions

The labelling committee will meet twice a year to decide on the award of the OCEAN APPROVED® label to candidate companies.
