Safety by monitoring
Healthy and safe food for the consumers is the sole aim of QS.
Laboratories authorized for the quality assurance system regularly evaluate, within the framework of monitoring programs, the maintenance of defined limits and thresholds. They examine the products of the scheme participants for environmental poisons, residues of plant protection products, mycotoxins and heavy metals but also for hygienic parameters such as salmonella contamination.
Thanks to the systematic monitoring process, problems can be recognized and measures can be implemented to eliminate them.
The QS defined requirements with regard to the performance of the laboratories, among other things, the accreditation in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 ensure safe and comparable results.
