Kontrol ve Sertifikasyon Süreci
 
ORGANIC CERTIFICATION
 
Organic products range from fresh fruits and vegetables straight from the farm to wines and cheeses aged over several years. Sales channels are equally diverse, including:
  • local organic markets
  • organic shops in rural or urban areas
  • roadside stalls in the countryside
  • direct sales at the farm where the food was produced
  • online ordering of organic boxes delivered to the door or to collection points
  • supermarkets: many are now expanding and developing their organic product ranges
  • restaurants, canteens and catering firms: a growing sector including school meals, public and private-sector canteens and cafeterias in some high-profile companies
Consumer Confidence
 
Wherever today's consumers choose to buy or eat organic products, they should be able to have confidence that these comply with strict EU rules. Products that do not meet these standards may not be referred to as organic or bear the EU's organic logo or a national equivalent.
 
This is why the EU regulation on organic farming covers not only production and processing, but also the control and labelling of organic food.
 
Control
 
Organic farmers, processors and traders, must comply with strict EU requirements if they want to use the EU organic logo or label their products as organic.
 
The EU requires an equally strict control system with checks carried out at every stage of the organic chain. Every operator (farmer, processor, trader, importer or exporter) is checked at least once a year, or more often on the basis of risk assessment.
 
So whenever you buy organic food, you can be confident that it has been produced in accordance with strict environmental and animal welfare rules and checked accordingly.
 
Labelling of Organic Produce
 
As well as the standard list of ingredients and nutritional value figures, organic product labels should bear the name of the producer, processor or distributor who last handled the item. The name or code number of the national certification authority should also be on the label.
 
The name or code number of the control authority or body in the EU which checked the operator should also be on the label.

The regulation set a new course for developing organic farming further, with the following aims
  • sustainable cultivation systems
  • a variety of high-quality products.
  • greater emphasis on environmental protection
  • more attention to biodiversity
  • higher standards of animal protection
  • consumer confidence
  • protecting consumer interests.
Organic production respects natural systems and cycles. Biological and mechanical production processes and land-related production should be used to achieve sustainability, without having recourse to genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
 
In organic farming, closed cycles using internal resources and inputs are preferred to open cycles based on external resources. If the latter are used, they should be
  • organic materials from other organic farms
  • natural substances
  • materials obtained naturally, or
  • mineral fertilisers with low solubility.
Exceptionally, however, synthetic resources and inputs may be permissible if there are no suitable alternatives. Such products, which must be scrutinised by the Commission and EU countries before authorisation, are listed in the annexes to the implementing regulation (Commission Regulation (EC) No. 889/2008).
 
Labelling Organic Foods
 
Foods may be labelled "organic" only if at least 95% of their agricultural ingredients meet the necessary standards. In non-organic foods, any ingredients which meet organic standards can be listed as organic. To ensure credibility, the code number of the certifying organisation must be provided.
 
Organic production outlaws the use of genetically modified organisms and derived products. However, the regulation on genetically modified food and feed lays down a threshold (0.9%) under which a product's GMO content does not have to be indicated. Products with GMO content below this threshold can be labelled organic.
 
Since 1 July 2010, producers of packaged organic food have been required under EU law to use the EU organic logo. However, this is not a binding requirement for organic foods from non-EU countries. Where the EU organic logo is used, the place where any farmed ingredients were produced must be indicated.
 
Importing Organic Products
 
Organic products from non-EU countries can be distributed on the EU market only if produced and inspected under conditions that are identical or equivalent to those applying to EU organic producers. The rules introduced by the 2007 regulation are more flexible than the previous set-up, under which organic goods could be imported from outside the EU only if they were EU-certified, their production was monitored by the EU countries and an import licence had been issued.
 
The import licence procedure has been replaced by new import rules. Control bodies (Certifying organisations) operating in non-EU countries are now directly authorised and monitored by the European Commission and EU countries.
 
This allows the EU Commission to supervise and monitor the import of organic products and the checks carried out on organic guarantees. The new legislation also lays the foundation for EU rules on organic produce including wine, aquaculture products and seaweed.
