Hong Kong Q-Mark Food Certification Schemes

The Hong Kong Q-Mark Food Certification Schemes are administered by the Hong Kong Q-Mark Council under the auspices of the Federation of Hong Kong Industries. The operation of the schemes is financed mainly by revenue arising from certification and maintenance processes. Furthermore, it is the Council’s policy to place the utmost importance on the integrity, impartiality, potential conflicts of interests and non-discrimination in carrying out the certification activities.

The schemes are an independent product certification program and accredited by the Hong Kong Accreditation Service (HKAS) under the Hong Kong Certification Body Accreditation Scheme (HKCAS). The schemes are product certification scheme type 5 as refer to ISO/IEC 17067 and in accordance with ISO/IEC 17065.

The Hong Kong Q-Mark Council has established procedures to ensure fair handling of complaints and disputes brought by certificate holders, applicants or other interested parties, and to allow them an avenue of appeal. Please approach the Council directly for the detailed information.
