While ICA Bremen and our certified laboratories provide a high quality HVI testing service, often it is more than just testing that is required. After samples have been tested using HVI, the results may need to be analysed and interpreted so that the client knows what action to take. This is where a Quality Expert can help – they have the experience and knowledge to help clients make decisions from their results.
In addition, Quality Expert certification covers more than just HVI testing. The criteria specify that to become a Quality Expert, extensive knowledge and experience of classing cotton are also required. This means that these experts have a wide knowledge of all cotton quality issues, not just those restricted to HVI testing.
