Vegan verification services provider Eurofins Chem-Map has been approved with US-based company BeVeg as a robust way of verifying products, materials and chemicals as vegan.
BeVeg claims to be the world’s only ISO accredited vegan technical standard, trademark and programme, making it a reliable vegan trademark claim.
It is an ISO/IEC 17065 accredited certification standard built in accordance with ISO/IEC 17067 as a conformity assessment programme and accredited by the National Accreditation Centre (NAC).
“Being able to offer testing which supports the BeVeg ISO/IEC accredited vegan trademark to vegan product owners reinforces our current Vegan Verification programme,” says Georgina Mawer, head of Chem-MAP.
Carissa Kranz, CEO/founding attorney, BeVeg International, adds: “BeVeg demands products and companies to prove up their vegan claims. This can be done with accredited on-site audits and DNA lab analysis. After careful consideration of the lab process, BeVeg feels confident in the mechanisms used to detect trace animal parts in material components aspiring to gain the global BeVeg certification badge of approval.”
