VLOG "Ohne Gentechnik" Standard

With the strong support of numerous stakeholders, the VLOG has developed a uniform "GMO-free" production and testing standard. This standard was designed together with representatives of producers of animal feed and food industry, certification bodies, interest groups and public representatives. It supports production facilities in the implementation of the legal requirements of "GMO-free" labeling and establishes uniform inspections for certification companies. The standard is available free as a download.

VLOG "Ohne Gentechnik" Standard

At 07.11.2017 the 5th version 18.01 of the Standard was published. Since 1 January 2014, the application of the Standard for obtaining a license for the use of the seal „Ohne GenTechnik " has been compulsory.

In addition to the Standard f.e. facility descriptions and checklists are being provided. For certifications according to the VLOG „Ohne Gentechnik" Standard, the content of the VLOG facility descriptions needs to be captured. However, own templates can be used. Even with the checklists, it is possible to use your own documents, however, the content of the checklists (regarding audit data) and the text of the control points must be copied 1:1. For all other attachments of the Standard it can be deviated from the documents made ​​available as long as the same content is transported only in another form.

Certification bodies issuing certificates that are used as prima facie evidence for the VLOG have to enter into an agreement with the VLOG.

VLOG exclusively accepts analysis results from laboratories that are recognized by VLOG.

Standard Usage Agreement (Processing time: 2 weeks)

It is necessary to realize a contract (Standard Usage Agreement) between the standard body (VLOG) and the company that gets certified. The contract regulates the use of the VLOG-Standard. Once it is mutually signed, it will be presented by the company during the audit or sent to the appropriate certification body. Only after having done so a certificate can be issued.

Standard Usage Agreement (formerly Certification Agreement) incl Master Data Sheet

Master Data Sheet (editable version)

Please send us the contract twice printed and signed in original via postal mail. You will get a countersigned version back. The data sheet can be sent as single version.
