On January 1, 2022, the new EU organic regulation (eu)2018/828 has been in force. It’s an important update for European importers that concerns the need for precautionary measures in the value chain to avoid contamination.
To prevent unacceptable contamination of organic products, operators must take adequate measures to identify and avoid such risks. Such measures should be reviewed periodically and adjusted as necessary along the value chain from the origin of the product (seeds, inputs, agriculture), and be valued as “proportionate “and “appropriate”. The importers are obliged to carry out regular checks and adjustments.
