General sales terms and conditions.

ILVO acts in accordance with Article 8, §1 of the Royal Decree of 14 November 2003 on self-checking, compulsory notification and traceability in the food chain. If, during the performance of an analysis, the presence of an organism is suspected and / or established for which a notification requirement applies, this must be reported to the FASFC. The lab will point this out to the customer, request proof of this and, if necessary, report it itself.
