HOW DOES THE EXCHANGE WORK?

Membership:

Qualification for membership of the Scottish Seafood Exchange will be based principally on the potential member's track record in business and in the seafood industry.

The Scotsea trading system:

The Scotsea market platform allows buyers and sellers to negotiate using a secure private voice connection, text-based chat or video conferencing and agree the deal on screen. The Scotsea trading system will enable sellers to direct their products speedily to where the demand is, and guide buyers straight to the very lots they want to buy.

Quality Management:

The Project Partners are working with national and international quality control organisations and certification schemes to promote the delivery of consistent

quality through the establishment of firm rules and guidelines for all those trading on the exchange system.

Payment for Quality:

Sellers need to plan and manage their finances. They have the right to be paid on time, except in the case of disputed amounts. But buyers also are entitled to expect that they will receive what they ordered. The Project Partners are working with the industry, the banking sector and credit insurers to draw up fair and just rules for ensuring compliance. It is also planned to offer independent mediation in the case of dispute.
