Since September 2016-th GMP+FSA Certification in VEMO 99 LTD is acquired through Control Union Certifications B.V. – a company approved explicitly by GMP+ as a certification body to certify companies under GMP+ for a wide scope of activities.
With its foundation in agriculture, Control Union Certifications has focused its efforts in developing services around the sustainability of the industry’s supply chains which feed into the food, feed, forestry, biomass, bioenergy, social compliance and textiles markets.
Control Union Certifications was created in 2002 when Control Union acquired the Dutch Skal International, an auditing arm of Stichting Skal. What began as a joint venture grew into a wholly owned business that continued to expand its scope of activities from organic to sustainability and beyond.
Having its roots in agriculture gave Control Union Certifications an in-depth understanding of the complex challenges of bringing products to market and the marketing campaigns that we see from today’s supermarkets and department stores.
Control Union Certifications has a global presence that spans more than 70 countries in six continents.
Control Union Certifications obtains and maintains the highest level of integrity through its accreditations from numerous government and industry organisations, ensuring our services and certificates are at the highest level.
Control Union Certifications offers several feed safety certifications, including GMP+ FSA for Feed Safety Assurance, GMP+ FRA for Feed Responsible Assurance, Good Trading Practices (GTP) and secure feed audits.
The integrity of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme involves three parties with different roles and responsibilities:
- Certified companies must comply with the requirements of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme standards in a trustworthy way. A proper feed safety culture in a feed company is an essential condition to realize it.
- Certification Bodies have the responsibility of assessing and certifying companies in a competent and impartial way.
- GMP+ International, as the scheme owner, is responsible for setting appropriate normative standards, setting adequate rules of feed certification, and carry out effective compliance assessments of the certification process and the integrity policy.
In January 2020-th in VEMO 99 LTD was conducted a parallel audit carried directly by GMP+ International B.V. (the owner of the certification scheme) to confirm the compliance of the company to the norms of the scheme and the effectiveness and competence of the certification body in assessing the same.
