COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1235/2008

of 8 December 2008

laying down detailed rules for implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 as regards the arrangements for imports of organic products from third countries



THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 of 28 June 2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 ( 1 ), and in particular Article 33(2), Article 38(d) and Article 40 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Articles 32 and 33 of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 lay down general provisions for import of organic products. With a view to guarantee that these provisions will be applied in a correct and uniform way, detailed rules and procedures for the application of those provisions should be laid down.

(2)

As substantial experience has been built up since 1992 with the import of products providing equivalent guarantees, a relatively short period should be given to control bodies and control authorities to request their inclusion in the list for the purpose of equivalence in accordance with Article 33 of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007. However, as there is no experience with the direct application of Community rules on organic production and labelling of organic products outside the territory of the Community, more time should be given to control bodies and control authorities wishing to request their inclusion in the list for the purpose of compliance in accordance with Article 32 of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007. Therefore a longer period should be provided for sending in the requests and for examining them.

(3)

For products imported according to Article 32 of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, the operators concerned should be able to provide documentary evidence. It is necessary to establish a model for this documentary evidence. Products imported according to Article 33 of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 should be covered by a certificate of inspection. It is necessary to lay down detailed rules with regard to the issuing of this certificate. Moreover, a procedure in order to coordinate at Community level certain controls on products imported from third countries which are intended to be marketed in the Community as organic should be laid down.

(4)

Argentina, Australia, Costa Rica, India, Israel, New Zealand and Switzerland were previously listed as third countries from which imported products could be marketed in the Community as organic, under Commission Regulation (EC) No 345/2008 of 17 April 2008 laying down detailed rules for implementing the arrangements for imports from third countries provided for in Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 on organic production of agricultural products and indications referring thereto on agricultural products and foodstuffs ( 2 ). The Commission has re-examined the situation of those countries according to the criteria set out in Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, taking into consideration the production rules applied and the experience gained with the import of organic products from these third countries as previously listed under Article 11(1) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/2091. On this basis it is concluded that the conditions for inclusion of Argentina, Australia, Costa Rica, India, Israel, and New Zealand in the list of third countries for equivalency according to Article 33(1) of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 are fulfilled.

(5)

The European Community and the Swiss Confederation have concluded an Agreement on trade in agricultural products ( 3 ) approved by Decision 2002/309/EC of the Council and of the Commission ( 4 ). Annex 9 to that Agreement covers organically produced agricultural products and foodstuffs and sets out that the Parties must take the necessary measures so that organic products complying with each other’s laws and regulations can be imported and placed on the market. For the sake of clarity, Switzerland should also be listed in the list of third countries for equivalency according to Article 33(1) of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007.

(6)

Member States’ authorities have acquired substantial experience and expertise in the field of granting access for organic imported goods into the territory of the Community. To establish and maintain the lists of third countries and control bodies and control authorities, this experience should be used and the Commission should be able to take account of reports from Member States and other experts. The tasks involved should be divided in a just and proportionate way.

(7)

Provision should also be made for transitional measures applicable to third country applications received by the Commission before 1 January 2009, the date from which Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 applies.

(8)

In order not to disrupt international trade, and to facilitate the transition between the rules established by Regulation (EEC) No 2092/2091 and those established by Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, it is necessary to extend the possibility of Member States to continue to grant authorisations to importers on a case by case basis for placing on the Community market of products until the measures necessary for the functioning of the new import rules have been put in place, in particular as regards the recognition of control bodies and control authorities referred to in Article 33(3) of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007. This possibility should be gradually phased out as the list of control bodies referred to in that Article is being established.

(9)

In order to improve transparency and guarantee the application of this Regulation, an electronic system for exchange of information between the Commission, the Member States, the third countries, and the control bodies and control authorities should be foreseen.

(10)

The detailed rules laid down in this Regulation replace those laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 345/2008 and in Commission Regulation (EC) No 605/2008 of 20 June 2008 laying down detailed rules for implementing the provisions concerning the certificate of inspection for imports from third countries under Article 11 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 on organic production of agricultural products and indications referring thereto on agricultural products and foodstuffs ( 5 ). Those Regulations should therefore be repealed and replaced by a new Regulation.

(11)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the regulatory Committee on organic production,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

At the request of the Commission or of the competent authority of a Member State, it shall make available without delay the list of all operators in the organic production chain and the competent authorities or control bodies under whose control those operators have placed their operations.

▼B

It shall furthermore give a serial number to each issued certificate and keep a register of the delivered certificates in chronological order.

5.  The certificate of inspection shall be drawn up in one of the official languages of the Community and filled in, except for the stamps and signatures, either entirely in capital letters or entirely in typescript.

(c) the declaration in box 16 is not required:

(i) when the importer presents an original document, issued by the competent authority of the Member State which granted the authorisation in accordance with Article 19 of this Regulation, demonstrating that the consignment is covered by that authorisation; or

(ii) when the Member State’s authority, which granted the authorisation referred to in Article 19, has given satisfactory evidence that the consignment is covered by that authorisation, directly to the authority in charge of the verification of the consignment; this procedure of direct information is optional for the Member State which granted the authorisation;

(d) the document giving the evidence required in points c(i) and (ii), shall include:

(i) the reference number of the import authorisation and the date of expiration of the authorisation;

The first consignee shall then send the original of the certificate to the importer mentioned in box 11 of the certificate, for the purpose of the requirement laid down in the second subparagraph of Article 33(1) of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, unless the certificate has to further accompany the consignment referred to in paragraph 1 of this Article.

10.  The certificate of inspection may be established by electronic means, using the method made available to the control authorities or control bodies by the Member State concerned. The competent authorities of the Member States may require that the electronic certificate of inspection be accompanied by an advance electronic signature within the meaning of Article 2(2) of Directive 1999/93/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council ( 7 ). In all other cases, the competent authorities shall require an electronic signature offering equivalent assurances with regard to the functionalities attributed to a signature by applying the same rules and conditions as these defined in the Commission’s provisions on electronic and digitised documents, set out by Commission Decision 2004/563/EC, Euratom ( 8 ).

Article 14
