History

Quality Partner is born

Founded in 2000 by Professor Georges Daube (University of Liège) and with public and private investment, Quality Partner initially focused on microbiological analysis (core business) and research, via its laboratory. Soon after, it introduced a new service, enabling clients to check the use-by dates stamped on their products, under accreditation no. BELAC135-TEST (ISO/IEC 17025 for analyses and R&D) and performing ‘challenge tests’.

Inspection body

In 2002, the spin-off company’s inspection body was awarded BELAC135-INSP accreditation (ISO/IEC 17020) to perform audits and inspections based on public or private specifications. One year later, it received product certification accreditation BELAC 135-PROD (EN 45011, now ISO/IEC 17065).

This product certification provides official, highly visible recognition of the quality of the certified products.

Organic production certification

In 2008, Quality Partner developed – and was accredited for – a new set of organic production tests and inspections.

Quality management system certification

In 2009, Quality Partner received accreditation BELAC 135-QMS for quality management system certification (ISO/IEC 17021). This was a necessary step to ensure that it could deliver certifications compliant with the ISO 22000 standard.

Metagenomics

In 2012, Quality Partner introduced a brand new, unique offering based on the skills of its multi-disciplinary team (molecular biologist, taxonomist and food technologist). This new offering reflects the needs of a fast-growing sector, ensuring that its clients’ products remain highly competitive and achieve the very best quality.

Certification body for Luxembourg

Quality Partner is an accredited certification body for Luxembourg.

Organic production certification in a third country

In 2016, Quality Partner was recognised as an equivalent certification body for organic production certification in a third country (Indonesia).
