Where it is important for the reliability of food and feed or the health of the animals, the QS requirements exceed the legal requirements. This is particularly the case in the area of food safety. Thus, QS in feed monitoring, antibiotic monitoring, salmonella monitoring and residue monitoring requires the systematic control of individual products. In addition, the QS scheme requirements on animal welfare and animal health are more stringent than those required by law.
