    Laboratory approval


    Laboratory results form an important basis for far-reaching corporate decisions such as cause research according to the BNN orientation value or recalls. Therefore, the Bundesverband Naturkost Naturwaren (BNN) e.V. has developed special requirements which certify the "bio-competence" of a laboratory.

    The results of lab analyses together with the interpretation and derived recommendations form the basis for many far-reaching company decisions like investigations according to BNN-Orientation Value or recalls. Therefore, reliability of the analysis results has central meaning, also and especially for organic products.

    Consequently, special requirements in context of the analysis and interpretation of results regarding organic products have been developed. Based on these requirements a laboratory approval for pesticide analyses of organic products has been established in order to ensure a high quality standard and to facilitate the choice of a qualified laboratoryfor BNN members and other companies in the organic sector. Besides the analytical competence laboratories have to demonstrate that they are able to interpret pesticide detections in Organic products, especially according to BNN-Orientation Value.
