QS recognizes the audits of the Dutch standard IKB-Varken (Kiwa VERIN) for pig farming businesses and slaughtering and deboning businesses. Pig farming businesses can deliver into the QS scheme based on their IKB certification. For this purpose, they are registered in the QS database by the Dutch standard owner. All businesses with delivery eligibility are listed in the QS database. Slaughtering and deboning businesses certified in accordance with IKB-Varken can also become QS scheme participants based on this audit. For this purpose, they register directly in the QS database, where their eligibility to deliver is listed.
Conversely, Kiwa VERIN recognizes the QS audits with additional requirements for both pig farming and slaughtering and deboning businesses. Interested companies should contact the QS office.
