BePork (Belpork v.z.w.)
There is a mutual audit recognition between the Belgian standard BePork and QS. Pig farms, as well as slaughter and deboning companies that have been successfully certified according to BePork, can deliver live pigs or pork to the QS scheme.
The bilateral agreement replaces the previous Certus and CodiplanPlus standards. After a transitional phase in which the previous certificates will continue to be valid, slaughter and deboning companies will only be able to deliver into the QS scheme on the basis of BePork certification from January 1, 2022, and farms from January 1, 2023.
