Certification bodies must meet a number of requirements and be recognised by VLOG in order for them to be authorised to issue valid VLOG certificates
Certification against the VLOG Standard is achieved through regular checks by independent certification bodies that verify the correct implementation of the VLOG requirements on site at the companies. The expertise and independent monitoring by the certification bodies thus make a significant contribution to safeguarding "Ohne Gentechnik" production.
Only certification bodies recognised by VLOG may be commissioned with certification according to the VLOG Standard. Only VLOG certificates or attestations from these certification bodies are accepted by VLOG as the basis for granting a license for using the "Ohne GenTechnik" and/or "VLOG geprüft" seal.
