TR5 Event-based Full-Chain Traceability for Seafood

Since 2005 Trace Register has provided trustworthy seafood traceability solutions. TR5 is a next-generation event-based full-chain traceability system specifically designed for the seafood industry. It enables fishers, fish farmers, seafood importers, processors, and retailers to provide the complete product story.
Traditional traceability systems are based on key data elements (KDEs), which worked when only a handful of KDEs was required. Today, many companies manage hundreds of KDEs per product. Event-based full-chain seafood traceability is much different. It captures a product’s history as a series of critical tracking events (CTEs.) Each CTE captures the Who, What, When, Where, and Why. By grouping event-based collections of KDEs, a contextual dimension results that is not possible with traditional traceability.

TR5 is an open Interoperable system based on seafood industry standards

Instead of closed proprietary systems, TR5 can exchange data with any other traceability system using the same common standards, including GDST (Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability) and GS1 standards. 

Yes No

TR5 uses master data to eliminate re-entry of static data

TR5 reduces the re-keying of data by 80% and significantly improves data quality.

Yes No

TR5 provides CMCA (continuous monitoring, continuous auditing) to all users to move from a reactive to a proactive approach

An integrated quality management system, TR5 allows users to increase data quality and trust greatly. No matter the size of your company, both the data sender and data receiver can check whether the data is complete and valid.

Yes No

TR5 uses linked data, the key to delivering the Semantic Web

TR5 enables interconnected webs of data to be used within existing workflows and produce machine-processable meaning.

Yes No

TR5 revolutionizes seafood traceability document management with Document Linking

TR5 links certificates to master data and attachments to events. It allows for easy validation of certificates with the associated master data and CTEs with their supporting documents.

Yes No

TR5 will enable GS1 Digital Link

These new standards will enable the traceability internet. A single bar code will connect customers and consumers to all the information about a product they want and need.

Yes No

TR5 can register CTEs on blockchain

Doing so addresses the challenge of knowing whether the data was modified in the middle of the chain. The result is product transparency with proprietary privacy.
