Managing risks and eliminating hazards
High-quality feed is the basis for good animal nutrition, and systematic feed monitoring is therefore of central importance. The QS feed monitoring system monitors compliance with limit and guidance values for substances like mycotoxins, dioxins, plant protection products and heavy metals.
Feed producers, feed traders and agricultural businesses who mix their own feed all take part in QS feed monitoring.
You can find the documents for your participation in the QS feed monitoring programme and the link to the QS database here:
Systematic and thorough
Sampling is carried out according to specific control plans. Analyses are systematically spread over the entire year. Feed material producers and traders whose products are not covered by a sector-specific control plan submit a business-specific control plan to QS for approval. Coordinators organise participation in feed monitoring for farmers.
All sample data and test results are recorded in the QS database. To ensure that all requirements are met and that laboratory results can be compared, only QS-recognised laboratories may be commissioned to perform the tests.
