Development and state of play
From 2022 onwards, farmers, processors and traders who make and sell organic products have to comply with a new organic regulation. With new legal texts it is like a new pair of walking boots. You have to get used to them, sometimes adjust the straps and put in the miles before they really fit well.
After 1.5 years working with the new regulation, we want to look at one particular element of it, namely the responsibilities of the operator and the control authorities to preserve the organic quality. In this part one we will focus on: how did it work in the old regulation, what changes have occurred and what is the future?
In general, what are we talking about?
It has always been one of the most important concepts in the organic regulations that a farmer, company or business active in the organic production chain is responsible for the quality of the organic product. Quality is a very broad word, and in this context, we mean taking care that the organic production rules are applied properly to products you make, buy and sell.
