Laboratory performance assessment for QS-residue monitoring – not all laboratories are convincing

15 07 09 Aktuelle EFSA Stellungnahme

In spring 2019, QS put the analytical competence of QS-approved laboratories in Germany and abroad to the test for the 26th time. They were faced with the challenge of identifying eight active substances added to the onion test matrix, two of them using individual methods. Of a total of 65 participating QS-approved laboratories, eight failed in this task. The remaining 57 laboratories passed the test successfully, 31 of them with the maximum score. Furthermore, 25 laboratories took part in the spring test in the recognition procedure, of which only 14 laboratories passed the current test, and on a voluntary basis a third-party laboratory, whose participation was also successful.

OQUALIM recognises VLOG feed as equivalent

19 07 15 OQUALIM Erkennt VLOG Futtermittel Als Gleichwertig An

For QS-certified feed companies using the VLOG add-on module, it is now much easier to supply French farmers with GMO-free feed. The reason for this trade facilitation is that since 1 June 2019, the French feed standard owner OQUALIM has recognised VLOG certifications as equivalent and vice versa. OQUALIM and VLOG reached an agreement on this in May.
