Introduction of “semi-organic” pullets and use of non-organic protein feed: extension of derogations (IT)


COP (the Committee for Organic Agriculture at the EU Commission) recently adopted a Regulation extending two important derogations, due to expire on 31 December 2017,  for one year (until 31 December 2018):

  • The derogation concerning the use of so-called "semi-organic" pullets (Article 42b of Regulation (EC) No 889/2008);
  • The derogation for the use of 5% non-organic protein feed for pigs and poultry (Article 43 (2) of Regulation (EC) No 889/2008).

The new measure will soon be published  in the Official Journal of the European Union.
