The participation of livestock owners in the QS Scheme is organised by so-called coordinators. The current list of coordinators can among others be found under this link. Which coordinator you choose is up to you.
You sign a declaration of participation and power of attorney with your coordinator: this is the contractual basis of QS participation. Your coordinator will then take care of the next steps for the QS certification: he registers you in the QS database, clarifies the participation in the monitoring programmes and organises the audits. After the passed audit has been released, you are eligible to deliver in the QS Scheme.
Coordinators are the first contact persons for all livestock owners. They are the connection between you and QS. If you have any questions about the QS Scheme and QS requirements, please contact your coordinator. He will also provide you with information on the costs of the scheme participation and auditing.
