A/S Baltic Control Ltd, Aarhus was established in 1980 by Hugo Pedersen, at the port of Aarhus, Denmark, in order to offer control services in the agricultural sector, especially shiploads of grain and feed to the former Soviet Union and the DDR, where large quantities were shipped from Scandinavian ports on feeder vessels over the Baltic Sea - hence the name Baltic Control. The company quickly expanded to other regions and activities to what it is today; a truly global and recognized company operation in the testing inspection and certification (TIC) industry.
Baltic Control Certification A/S was established in May 2017, when the management of Baltic Control Group decided to gather the certification activities in an independent company with headquarter in Kgs. Lyngby north of Copenhagen.
Jøren Ivar Brus Mikkelsen runs his herd of Forest Cattle from the National Park Mols Bjerge. Since 2014, he has been certified by Baltic Control® Certification and has an annual inspection to ensure that the herd meets the certification and the quality requirements that accompany it.
Baltic Control® Certification specializes in sustainability certification of companies in the energy sector.The prerequisite for such a sustainability certificate is that a company is subject to a legal requirement for documentation that affects all parts of the value chain. For example, you must document that your production does not harm or damage natural areas.
”Since January 2009, Baltic Control® Certification has had the task of controlling the Danish pig herds. They are very serious and professional” says Asger Kjær Nielsen, Quality Manager for DANISH Product Standard at SEGES Knowledge Center for Pig Production
