A certification body controls certification standards and procedures for good agricultural practices. It aims to increase consumers' confidence in food safety by developing good agricultural practices which must be adopted by producers.
Primoris has build up a lot of experience working together with official food safety inspection organisations and supports these official groups with pesticide analyses and advice related to the official food safety legislation.

Proficiency tests, independent controls of a laboratory’s analysis quality, are part of Primoris’ everyday operation. The past months Primoris participated in the following proficiency tests:
- FAPAS: pesticides in honey
- Proof-ACS: pesticides in baby food
- FAPAS: pesticides in in basmati rice
- EURL-FV: pesticides in egg plant
Research and development are an important part of the Primoris activities.
To support these developments, we always consider evolutions in market demands and legislation. Maximal risk coverage is becoming increasingly important within pesticide residue analysis, which can be contributed to the increased focus on food safety. Furthermore, we have noticed a growing market demand for lower reporting limits.
On Monday 1 March, we activate a substantial expansion of our LC/MS-MS multiresidue methods. Thanks to this expansion, we assure maximum safety regarding the current legislations and directions in terms of food safety and we offer you analytical methods that are in line with the actual needs of the market and that are relevant for your products.
Since Monday 26 October, Primoris can support you with accredited analyses to quantify ethylene oxide in food and feed. Samples that are registered as from Tuesday 10 November for ethylene oxide analysis will be reported with a reporting limit of 0,01 mg/kg.
