The HortiQ (link to site) certificate is specifically aimed at greenhouse horticulture. The certificate was created to guarantee investors and growers that the greenhouse construction, heating and water systems have been built and installed according to objective and verifiable standards. All certified companies are assessed by an independent body (KIWA) (link to site) on the basis of official Assessment Guidelines. HortiQ has two different standards for which companies can be certified.
BRL8000 stands for HortiQ Certified Process & Product and guarantees the quality of both the process and the product supplied and focuses on the design and construction of greenhouse structures, greenhouse heating and water systems.
The BRL8001 stands for HortiQ Certified Quality System and guarantees the company's general quality policy. This standard applies to Kemeling and all other companies that supply installations, systems and services to the greenhouse horticulture sector.
