Dear business partner!
Due to the ongoing changes in legislation and the requirements of various certification systems for products and traceability systems to control the labelling / information obligations and information rights of the public, it is necessary to obtain appropriate declarations and information from you regularly.
As a basis for any evaluation of raw materials, we generally require the following documents:
- a currently valid specification including important product properties and a declaration recommendation according to VO (EG) No. 1334/2008
- a GMO declaration in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003 and Regulation (EC) No 1830/2003

- a declaration of conformity for the packaging used in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 10/2011, Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004, Regulation (EC) No 2023/2006

- Depending on the type of raw material, requirement profile and application, other regulations apply, such as Regulation (EC) No 1881/2006, Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, Regulation (EC) No 1334/2008, Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008, Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011, Regulation (EC) No 852/2004, Regulation (EU) No 231/2012 and others.

Existing certificates, such as GFSI recognized certifications (IFS Food, BRC, FSSC 22000, …), are desired.
We, therefore, ask you to send us the relevant documents without being asked. Please note that you must inform us in advance and without delay of any changes in the documentation you have sent us.
