Imports from third countries: TRACES system soon into force

Next 19 October the use of the new electronic certification system for imports of organic products will become mandatory. The electronic certificate aims at improving traceability of imported organic products and reduce potential fraud. So, from 19 October 19, only certificates issued via the electronic system will be valid. The electronic certificate is accessible through the TRACES (Trade Control & Expert System) system, the EU electronic system to monitor foodstuffs movements throughout the EU.

UE-Chile: signed the agreement on trade in organic products

The European Union and Chile have signed their agreement on trade in organic products reached last year. 

The agreement means that the EU and Chile will mutually recognise the equivalence of their organic production rules and control systems, allowing all organic products produced and controlled according to EU rules to be directly placed on the Chilean market, and vice-versa. The organic logos currently used by the EU and Chile for their products will also be protected as part of the deal.

Imports of organic products: new EU electronic certification system

A new system of electronic certification to better monitor imports of organic products started on 19 April, making the EU a global leader in traceability and in the collection of reliable data on trade of these products. It is a pioneering e-certification system that will contribute to enhancing food safety provisions and reducing potential fraud. It will also reduce the administrative burden for operators and authorities, and provide much more comprehensive statistical data on organic imports.
