Do your checks first...
The QS monitoring program carries out analyses of feed and food items. Here, only those QS recognized laboratories are permitted which have been accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. With the systematic monitoring process, problems can be recognised early and measures can be implemented quickly to eliminate them. There are three monitoring programs established within QS:
- The QS feed monitoring program checks whether legal maximum and QS guideline values are maintained in animal feed.
- The QS salmonella program and reduction program targets the reduction of salmonella entry risk in the pork and poultry meat production.
- In the fruit, vegetable and potato sector, the QS residue monitoring program checks the compliance with the maximum residue values or thresholds for plant protection products and other substances.
