COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2020/25

of 13 January 2020

amending and correcting Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 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

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

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) and (3) and Article 38(d), thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), establishes that the scheme of control bodies and control authorities recognised by the Commission on the basis of Article 33(3) of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 to carry out controls and to issue certificates in third countries for the purpose of importing products with equivalent guarantees will be replaced by a scheme of control bodies and control authorities recognised by the Commission for the purpose of importing compliant products. The new import scheme provided in Regulation (EU) 2018/848 will apply from 1 January 2021. In order to ensure that the necessary administrative capacities are available to provide for a timely recognition of control bodies and control authorities under the new scheme, it is appropriate to introduce a final date for receiving new requests for the recognition of control bodies and control authorities for the purpose of equivalence pursuant to Article 10 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 (3) and the inclusion of such control bodies and control authorities in the list set out in Annex IV to that Regulation. Requests received after that date should no longer be admissible.

(2)

Products imported from a third country can be placed on the Union market as organic if they are covered by a certificate of inspection issued by the competent authorities, control authorities or control bodies of a recognised third country or by a recognised control authority or control body. In order to ensure compliance with the second subparagraph of Article 33(1) of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, which requires the certificate of inspection to accompany the goods to the premises of the first consignee, and with a view to ensuring the traceability of the imported products during distribution, including transport form third countries, it should be clarified that the certificate of inspection is to be issued by the relevant control authority or control body at the moment the consignment leaves the third country of export or origin.

(3)

Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 sets out the list of third countries whose systems of production and control measures for organic production of agricultural products are recognised as equivalent to those laid down in Regulation (EC) No 834/2007.

(4)

Japan has informed the Commission that its competent authority has added the control body ‘Akatonbo’ to the list of control bodies recognised by Japan.

(5)

The Republic of Korea has informed the Commission that its competent authority has changed the name of ‘Neo environmentally-friendly’ and the name and internet address of ‘Association for Agricultural Products Quality Evaluation’. The Republic of Korea has also informed the Commission that the recognition of the control body ‘Korea Agricultural Product and Food Certification’ has been withdrawn.

(6)

The United States has informed the Commission that its competent authority has added seven control bodies to the list of control bodies recognised by the United States for the purpose of the equivalence under Article 33(2) of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, namely ‘CERES’, ‘EcoLOGICA S.A’, ‘Food Safety S.A.’, ‘IBD Certifications’, ‘Istituto per la Certificazione Etica e Ambientale (ICEA)’, ‘OnMark’ and ‘Perry Johnson Registrar Food Safety, Inc.’. The United States has also requested the removal of ‘Global Culture’, ‘Global Organic Certification Services’, ‘Stellar Certification Services, Inc.’, ‘Institute for Marketecology (IMO)’, and ‘Basin and Range Organics (BARO)’ from the list in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008.

On the basis of the dossier submitted by ‘Agricert — Certificação de Produtos Alimentares lda’, the scope of its recognition was extended to Guinea for product categories A and D by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/39 (6). However, in that dossier that control body had wrongly requested an extension for Guinea instead of Guinea Bissau. Based on the information received, the Commission has concluded that it is justified to correct Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 accordingly. In the interest of clarity and legal certainty, this correction should apply from the date of entry into force of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/39.

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