Becoming a QS scheme participant

Are you a feed material or compound feed producer, do you operate a trading and transport company or a storage and transhipment facility for feed and would like to participate in the QS scheme? Here you will find detailed information on participating in the QS scheme.

If you are a feed material producer and would like to participate in the QS scheme, register online in the QS database. There, also select the certification body that you have commissioned to perform the audit. After successful auditing, you and QS sign a scheme agreement.

If you produce less than 1,000 tons (dry matter) feed material a year, you can participate in the QS scheme as small scale feed material producer based on an inspection. To participate, contact a certification body which organises all the further steps for you and performs the inspection.

Companies that produce feed material can also be integrated via system coordinators. You can enquire at the QS office whether you can use this option. There you also get the contact details of the system coordinators.
