QS recognizes audits of the standards IFS Logistics /IFS Food/IFS Wholesale/ IFS Cash & Carry / BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution and BRC Global Standard for Food Safety as equivalent for the storage of meat and meat products in the QS scheme. Companies, that are not owner of the QS goods and store it on behalf of other QS scheme participants, can participate in the QS scheme on the basis of their valid IFS Logistics /IFS Food/IFS Wholesale / Cash & Carry or BRC Storage & Distribution certificate. Therefore the companies need to contact their certification body and need to sign a corresponding agreement covering the QS scheme participation. Subsequently the companies need to register themselves in the QS database as new QS scheme participants. As soon as the certification body inserts the data of the corresponding certificate in the QS database the companies will be QS approved. All QS approved companies can be found in the official QS scheme participant search. Own storage locations of existing QS scheme participants on the stages slaughtering/deboning and processing of meat and meat products can also be integrated into the QS scheme on the basis of their above mentioned certificate. Therefore the companies also need to contact their certification body and register themselves in the QS database.
