As a producer you will participate automatically in the QS residue monitoring through your coordinator. He organises sampling, which can take place either on the horticultural location in the presence of or with the agreement of the manager or, in the case of delivery to the market, after delivery to the buyer (e.g. wholesaler, producer organisation). A sampling by the producer himself or employees is not permitted. The samples must always be taken from fruit, vegetables and potatoes that are ready for harvest and respectively sale. The coordinator also ensures that the data are entered into the QS database.
Participating in the residue monitoring is regardless of whether you participate via a QS audit or an approved audit (e.g. GlobalG.A.P.) in the QS scheme.
