Quality: successful renewal of QS recognition in 2020 | overview proficiency tests

Proficiency tests are part of Primoris’ everyday operation. These are independent tests that try to verify the analysis quality of a laboratory. Further, their results are used to evaluate the performance of the analysis methods and, if necessary, adjust them. Subsequently, Primoris also takes part in various undercover proficiency tests to meet the strictest quality demands possible.

The past months Primoris participated in the following proficiency tests:

  • Proof-ACS: pesticides on baby food (potato - eggplant) 
  • QS autumn: QS recognition
  • EURL-FV: pesticides on avocado


Successful renewal of QS recognition for 2020

As a result of a very successful proficiency test in the autumn of 2019, Primoris' QS recognition will once more be renewed for 2020.

QS stands for Qualität und Sicherheit and is the German quality system for food. Through this renewal, Primoris indicates that it meets the extra demands such as a broad accreditation scope, composition of analyses and good results in proficiency tests from QS and other providers.
