How does QS feed monitoring work?
First, the company must at least once a year create a site-specific control plan based on the requirements of the Guideline Feed Monitoring, which must at least be met. This control plan considers the expected annual tonnage for each product group (sector-specific) that will be sold as QS goods. The planned analyses must be allocated reasonable over the year to the QS feed and the given parameters.
The samples must be taken by a qualified person who is trained and experienced in the sampling of feed. Then the sample related data must be entered into the QS database. Afterwards, the sample should be sent within 10 days, together with the printed sample report, to the QS-approved laboratory commissioned in the QS database. As soon as the sample related data in the database is in the state
Laboratory Commissioned, the laboratory gets access to the data and can enter the analysis results in the QS database. The laboratory must enter the results of the analysis in the QS database at the latest 30 days after the sample has been received or 10 days after the end of the analysis. Once the laboratory has entered the analysis result and completed the sample related data, you can see the analysis results in the QS database under
Feed Monitoring and
Analysis Results. Here you can also compile the analyses for an evaluation by means of various filtering options or via a download function.
Instructions for using the QS database and entering the sample related data can be found in the support area of the QS database.
