Do subcontractors have to be certified in the QS scheme?

QS certification is required for subcontractors if they are regularly, i.e. recurrently, commissioned for planned tours by a QS scheme participant for the transport of QS goods. QS certification is also required if permanent (i.e. not order-related) contracts exist between the subcontractor and the ordering QS scheme participant.

This regulation also applies if subcontractors carry out logistics activities that are covered by the scope of certification at the slaughtering/ cutting, processing and wholesale stages.

The client (QS scheme partner) who commissions logistics processes in the sense of storage and transport activities is responsible for compliance with the requirements. He must inform the logistics company if a delivery with QS goods is involved.
