Workshop on the European import scheme for organic products

The EU is currently implementing the revised rules on the import regime. The first list of certification bodies approved for their operations in Third Countries was agreed on on 26 and 27 October 2011. A workshop took place at the Club of the University Foundation in Brussel at 13t October 2011, which aimed to help to better understand the criteria for assessment of certification bodies and provided a platform for control bodies, accreditation bodies, authorities and traders to discuss approval and surveillance procedures under the new import system. It also aimed at contributing to the elaboration of the Code of Good Practice agreed by the sector as encouraged by the Commission in the guidelines on imports of organic products into the European Union.
