The new Reg. (EU) 2020/1693: official change of the Reg (EU) 2018/848 application date (IT)


The new regulation (EU) 2020/1693 has now been published on the Official Journal of the European Union. It amends Regulation (EU) 2018/848 on organic production and labelling of organic products as regards its date of application and certain other dates referred to in that Regulation. It was a measure due to COVID-19 epidemic and to the state of emergency resulting from it: the Commission considered that Member States and operators would have not been able to guarantee the correct implementation and application of the new organic farming regulation from 1 January 2021.

In order, therefore, to ensure the proper functioning of the organic sector, it was necessary to postpone the effective date of the application of Regulation (EU) 2018/848 to 1 January 2022, the same for some other dates provided therein deriving from that date.
