Certification of biofertilizer is a voluntary commitment. The requirements set in the certification system are controlled by RISE, an independent organization, which contributes to increasing end users' confidence in the product.
A certification of biofertilizer according to SPCR 120 means that the biofertilizer has been produced from clean, source-source-separated and biodegradable substrates originating in the food- and/or feed chain. The certification also ensures that the biofertilizer is hygienized and meets the requirements for metal content and visible contaminants. Certification of biofertilizer according to SPCR 120 is also a basic prerequisite for KRAV labeling and thus use in organic farming.
Certification of biofertilizer begins with a qualification year when the hygienization method is controlled and a sampling and analysis of the biofertilizer is initiated. The qualification year includes three external audits. Provided that the hygienization method and the product are approved and it can be shown at external inspection that the quality assurance works, a certificate may be issued after 1 year.
As the biofertilizer is approved, a certificate is issued and an agreement is made with RISE regarding further control. From then on, the operator may use the certification label. Every following year, RISE then conducts an external audit that results in a report.

The qualification year starts when RISE performs the first audit. A visit can usually be booked 3-4 weeks in advance.
To initiate a certification of biofertilizer, an application must be submitted to RISE. During the qualification year, this must be supplemented with technical documentation, analysis reports, a description of the quality assurance and proposals regarding labeling.
