The FAMI-QS Code is aligned with ISO High Level Structure for Management Systems, allowing Operators to maintain an integrated Management System. The administration of the Code is in the hands of FAMI-QS Asbl, a non-profit organization, that coordinates the certification process in partnership with qualified Certification Bodies (CBs). In order to assure harmonization, impartiality and good competence, FAMI-QS Asbl runs regular training sessions and a Surveillance Programme by means of which our staff monitors the on site activities of the auditors.
