The SKV is advised and supported by a number of committees. You can find more information per committee below.
Board of Advisors
SKV has set up a Board of Advisors (CvA). The CvA is charged with the task of managing and supervising the Product Certification Regulations SKV (PCR). In addition, the Board is charged with the management and supervision of other systems based on the NEN-EN-ISO/IEC 17065 standard, for which SKV acts as a certifying body.
More information about the members of the Advisory Board can be found in SKV’s most recent annual report.
The Board has established the SKV Scientific Council. This Council advises the Board on the analytical methods, sampling and analysis, as well as on their quality assurance. It also advises on research to be initiated and on product quality aspects.
More information about the members of the Scientific Council can be found in SKV’s most recent annual report.
As well as a Scientific Council, the board has also established a Technical Committee. All advice given by the Scientific Council is first submitted to the Technical Committee, before it is considered by the Board.

Disputes Committee SKV and PCR
In 1991, the Board of SKV adopted the SKV 1991 Disputes Regulations, which provide for the establishment of a Disputes Committee for the Quality Assurance of the Veal Sector. This Disputes Committee is, with the exception of the civil court, charged with the decision in all disputes arising between affiliates and SKV.
Disputes that have arisen between affiliates or interested parties and the SKV with regard to product certification and/or the Product Certification Regulations SKV 2005 (PCR) form an exception to this. A PCR Disputes Committee has been set up for this purpose. The Board appoints the members of the SKV Disputes Committee. These persons have no ties with SKV. The Board also appoints a chair, who has the capacity of Master of Laws. The Disputes Committee consists of three members per case, including the chair.
An application for dispute resolution must be submitted by registered letter within 6 weeks of SKV sending the measure. The Disputes Committee then assesses whether or not the measure imposed by SKV was rightly taken. The Committee also has the option of moderating an imposed sanction.
More information about the members of the Disputes Committees can be found in SKV’s most recent annual report.
