Recognition procedure of laboratories
Laboratories that want to carry out GMO analyses for companies in the field of "VLOG geprüft" feed and "Ohne Gentechnik" food production must be recognized by VLOG. Since 2019, analysis results for companies to be certified will only be accepted if they originate from a laboratory recognized by VLOG in order to ensure a uniform approach to GMO analysis as well as a standardized procedure.
