Mergers & Acquisitions

Belgium quality standards moved to BelPork

On January 1, 2021, the previous Belgian quality standards Certus and CodiplanPlus were transferred to the new BePork standard. The Belgian standard provider Belpork is thus combining the earlier separate standards for pork (Certus) with those for live pigs (CodiplanPlus). Accordingly, the previous bilateral agreements that QS had made with the Belgian standard-holders have now been converted into a joint agreement between Belpork and QA merged.

After a transition phase in which the previous certificates are still valid, slaughterhouses and meat-cutting plants can only deliver into the QS system from January 1, 2022, and agricultural operations from January 1, 2023, on the basis of BePork certification. The prerequisite in all cases is that the companies are shown in the QS database as authorized to deliver.

Regardless of the new bilateral agreement that has now been concluded, QS is conducting the talks that have already started both with Belpork v.z.w. as well as with other European standard-setters on important industry topics, such as the debate about piglet castration and pig husbandry conditions.
