Reg. (EU) 2018/848: new Implementing and Delegated Regulations available (IT)


The first Implementing and Delegated Regulations, following Reg. (EU) 2018/848, Reg. (EU) 2020/427 and Reg. (EU) 2020/464, have now been published.

The first Regulation is a Delegated Act amending Annex II of Reg. (EU) 2018/848 and introducing some detailed rules for the production of organic products, with particular reference to sprouted seeds, bee nutrition and breeding systems for juveniles .

The second is an Implementing Act where the European Commission defines some uniform methods of the Reg. (EU) 2018/848 application, in particular as regards the retroactive recognition of periods for the purpose of conversion, the production of organic products, and information to be provided by Member States. With this regulation, the specific rules for the organic breeding of chickens are finally established, including breeding densities and the minimum surface of internal and outdoor areas.

Both Regulations apply from 1 January 2021. However, Regulation 2020/464 provides for transitional measures for the gradual adaptation to the new rules for breeding farms that comply with the current Regulation at 31 December 2020.
