Independent inspection has been embedded in the ORGAINVENT System since 1998.
In addition to their contract with ORGAINVENT, every system subscriber also enters into a contract with one of the independent certification organisations listed in the ORGAINVENT System.
Every operating site and every process stage (slaughter, cutting, processing, wholesale, food retail, butcher’s shops, farm shops) is regularly inspected on the basis of a checklist specified by ORGAINVENT that is designed explicitly to account for indication of origin and traceability. All of the employed auditors undergo an annual ORGAINVENT training course.
Inspection synergies with other certification systems – such as the QS System – are possible and desirable:
Following confirmation by the certification organisation in accordance with the dual-control principle and special approval by ORGAINVENT, every inspection report is stored in a database so that the inspection history can be evidenced at any time.
Any complaints relating to identification and traceability have the effect of triggering our sanctions system which, in addition to rapid assistance by the ORGAINVENT Team as a corrective measure, also provides for cautions and written warnings as well as contractual penalties in serious cases.
