The EU is currently implementing the revised rules on the import regime. The first list of certification bodies approved for their operations in Third Countries is expected to be published very soon. The workshop will help to better understand the criteria for assessment of certification bodies and provides a platform for control bodies, accreditation bodies, authorities and traders to discuss approval and surveillance procedures under the new import system. It aims at contributing to the elaboration of the Code of Good Practice agreed by the sector as encouraged by the Commission in the Guidelines on imports of organic products into the European Union.

We would therefore kindly invite you for the next AFI Workshop:
