Lead Auditor Quality & Processes

Lead Auditor Quality & Processes

Inspection of flower bulbs is the core task of the foundation Blomsterløgsinspektionsjenesten (BKD). They do this for both quality and quarantine violations. They carry out quality inspections, import and export inspections on behalf of the Dutch Food and Consumer Safety Authority (NVWA) and carry out laboratory research. BKD supports market access by inspecting flower bulbs at a leading quality level and provides national and international guarantees for the quality of flower bulbs. They carry out these inspections in an independent, reliable and efficient manner and are therefore an important part of the quality assurance for entrepreneurs in the flower bulb sector. BKD is an independent administrative body and carries out statutory tasks on behalf of and under the supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV). This new position has been created to further strengthen these tasks.
