It is our conviction that we dedicate our work to the field of organic certification and other reliable sustainability standards.
We stand for transparency and credibility
Our highly motivated team engages in the improvement of the quality assurance for agriculture products and food. The effective implementation of credible standards is of utmost priority to us. International communication with control bodies and accreditation bodies as well as with authorities belongs to our daily tasks.
Think global – certify local

Our inspection and certification services are limited to the member states of the European Union, currently Austria, Germany and Luxemburg.
GfRS is a founding member of the Quavera Alliance, an international alliance of certification bodies in the organic sector.

GfRS is proud to be long-standing member of EOCC. We support EOCC through participation in WG Regulation, TF Cross Checks, TF Competence of organic inspectors and TF Risk Assessment. We believe firmly that EOCC may deliver a convincing, strong and common position of control bodies to the organic sector.
We think outside the box
Be it within the context of national research and development projects, amongst them the German Federal Program for Organic Farming or EU programs, we are committed to the further development of effective and credible certification programs. Hereby, we can profit from the up-to-date know-how of the GfRS certification team.
