When an SKV affiliate reports there are veal calves ready for slaughter on the farm, an SKV inspector will visit the location to perform a final visual inspection of the herd. If, based on this inspection, the SKV inspector has no reason to suspect that the animals have been given any banned substances – and if any samples that were taken have proven that no forbidden substances were detected in the herd – a quality certificate is granted for the relevant group of animals.
SKV veal calves may only be slaughtered after a quality certificate has been issued for the herd in question. Slaughterhouses affiliated to the SKV may only slaughter veal calves that are accompanied by a quality certificate.
An example of the Quality certificate can be found in attachment II of the SKV Inspection and Sanction Regulations.
