A joint project of the Section for Agriculture and Biodnamic Federation-Demeter International
For many years, the Section for Agriculture has been fostering the exchange of biodynamic advisors by organising international meetings. At these meetings the desire for a common basis as well as for quality assurance became apparent. Step by step and in a participatory process, the current approach has been developed and the Peer Review Quality System for biodynamic advisors was able to be launched in January 2020.
The Peer Review Quality System is based on the charter, which deals with ethical matters such as transparency, respect, freedom of choice and confidentiality. The minimum criteria to be met provide quality assurance, while the peer review and self-reflection approach are intended to support quality development within the advisory work.
Participation is open to all biodynamic advisors who work in the national or international field and meet the required minimum criteria. All advisors who wish to work in projects for the International Certification Office (ICO) of the Biodynamic Federation-Demeter International must in future also be part of the Peer Review Quality System. If this Demeter qualification is sought, additional requirements have to be met.
