    Quality & Stewardship

Responsibility with system

Long-term success requires the highest quality – in our products and processes alike. KWS has set up a number of quality initiatives to support quality assurance.

The spectrum ranges from ISO-based certifications (e.g. 9001, 14001) to industry-specific standards such as Seedguard (seed treatment) and Excellence through Stewardship for the responsible handling of transgenic material.

All activities are bundled and documented in a central Integrated Management System. It also includes the overall audit planning, which is carried out in close coordination with the risk management.
