For pigs:

The diagnostic data must be reported for all fattening pigs delivered by QS-certified farmers. 

Outside Germany, the recording and reporting of the results to the farmer must be carried out in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 2019/627. The data must be sent to the farmer and each quarter (aggregated) to QS. For this purpose the companies have received a template for the transmission to QS. Irrespective of this, all diagnostic data must be entered into the slaughterhouse's EDP system. For the farmer, it must be possible to make a comparison with all farmers who have supplied the slaughterhouse.

  • Type of destocking (main destocking/pre-destocking)
  • The number of the slaughter batch
  • Date of slaughter
  • Date of stabling for fattening
  • Number of animals delivered for slaughter
