Participation criteria


With the participation in the QS scheme, a wholesaler is obliged to fulfill certain requirements. Their maintenance is examined in independent inspections. An essential criteria is, for example, the maintenance of an self-assessment and documentation system.

Further system requirements include:

  • Unique identification of QS goods with batch/lot numbers and the accompanying documentation.
  • Complete traceability must be ensured.
  • Participation in the QS residue monitoring program is obligatory.

All requirements are described in detail in the Guideline Wholesale – Fruit, Vegetables, Potatoes.
