COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/2325

of 16 December 2021

establishing, pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council, the list of third countries and the list of control authorities and control bodies that have been recognised under Article 33(2) and (3) of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 for the purpose of importing organic products into the Union

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018 on organic production and labelling of organic products and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 (1), and in particular Article 48(3) and Article 57(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 45(1), point (b)(iii), of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, a product may be imported for the purpose of placing that product on the market within the Union as an organic product or as an in-conversion product, if that product complies with the equivalent production and control rules of a recognised third country and is imported with a certificate of inspection confirming this compliance that was issued by the competent authorities, control authorities or control bodies of that third country. Article 48(1) of that Regulation clarifies that, in that context, a recognised third country is a third country that has been recognised for the purpose of equivalence under Article 33(2) of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 (2).

(2)

That recognition expires on 31 December 2026. Those third countries continue to be recognised until that date, in order to ensure a smooth transition to the scheme of recognition under a trade agreement pursuant to Article 47 of Regulation (EU) 2018/848, provided that they continue to ensure that their organic production and control rules are equivalent to the relevant Union rules in force and that they comply with all requirements relating to the supervision of their recognition by the Commission in accordance with Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/1342 (3).

(3)

The list of recognised third countries established by this Regulation is based on the list as published in Annex III to Commission Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 (4), with the exception of Chile, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, as the trade in organic products with those countries is covered by specific agreements. However, in the light of new information received by the Commission from certain third countries since the last amendment of that list, certain changes should be taken into consideration and the list should be adapted accordingly.

(4)

According to the information provided by Argentina, the name of the control body ‘Argencert’ has been changed to ‘Ecocert Argentina SA’.

(5)

Costa Rica has informed the Commission that its competent authority withdrew the control bodies ‘Control Union Perú’ and ‘Primus Labs.com CR S.A.’ from the list of control bodies recognised by Costa Rica.

(6)

As regards India, a large number of consignments totalling to thousands of tons of allegedly organic sesame seed contaminated with ethylene oxide (‘ETO’) have been imported from that third country, in particular from operators controlled by control bodies supervised by India, and resulting in about 90 notifications in the Organic Farming Information System (OFIS). It appears that the presence of ETO – which is carcinogenic for humans – was detected in organic products before 2020. Various reliable methods for the analysis of ETO have been developed over the last three decades and have therefore been available in order to detect such contaminations. As regards those OFIS notifications, the levels of contamination found in the consignments have usually by far exceeded the maximum residue level established for ETO, with the exact levels of contamination varying depending on the consignment. This has led both to consumers being misled and to a significant health risk. The occurrence of the ETO contamination and the high concentrations found, as well as the lack of response on the root causes of the failure of the control system from the control bodies involved in those contaminations, which are under the supervision of the Indian competent authority, and the inappropriate corrective measures taken by those control bodies and the competent authority, jeopardise the robustness of the controls and the supervision itself. In addition, on the basis of information received by the Commission, it appears that some of the control bodies involved in those OFIS notifications did not respect the scope of recognition of India as regards the products that may be imported into the Union. For all those reasons and in accordance with Article 3, point (a), of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/1342, the following control bodies should not appear in the list of control bodies recognised by the Indian competent authority: ‘CU Inspections India Pvt Ltd’, ‘Ecocert India Pvt Ltd’, ‘Indian Organic Certification Agency (Indocert)’, ‘Lacon Quality Certifications Pvt Ltd’ and ‘OneCert International Private Limited’.

(7)

Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 as amended by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/2196 (5) erroneously attributed the code number JP-BIO-038 to the control body ‘Japan Agricultural Standard Certification Alliance’, while that code number had already been assigned to the control body ‘Akatonbo’ by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/25 (6). ‘Japan Agricultural Standard Certification Alliance’ should therefore be assigned a different code.

(8)

The Republic of Korea has informed the Commission that its competent authority has added the control body ‘ORGANIC PROMOTION’ to the list of control bodies recognised by that competent authority.

(9)

New Zealand has informed the Commission that its competent authority has changed name.

(10)

The scheme of control authorities and control bodies recognised by the Commission under 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, while providing equivalent guarantees, is being phased out by Regulation (EU) 2018/848. As those control authorities and control bodies should be given sufficient time so that they can prepare themselves to obtain recognition for the purposes of the import of products that comply with Union rules, their recognition expires on 31 December 2024, provided that they comply with all requirements relating to the supervision of their recognition by the Commission in accordance with Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/1342.

(11)

The list of recognised control authorities and control bodies established by this Regulation is based on the list published in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008. However, in the light of new information and new requests for inclusion received by the Commission since the last amendment of that list, certain changes should be made to the list. In accordance with Article 11(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008, only complete requests submitted by 30 June 2021 under Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 were taken into account.

(12)

The Commission has received and examined a request from ‘A CERT European Organization for Certification S.A.’ to amend its specifications. Based on the information received, it is justified to extend the scope of its recognition for all third countries currently listed in point 3 of its entry in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008, to product categories B, C, and E.

(13)

As a consequence, the recognition of the control bodies ‘Biodynamic Association Certification’, ‘Organic Farmers & Growers C. I. C’, ‘Organic Farmers & Growers (Scotland) Ltd’, ‘Organic Food Federation’, ‘Quality Welsh Food Certification Ltd’ and ‘Soil Association Certification Limited’ for the purpose of importing organic products from the United Kingdom granted by Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/2196 should be withdrawn.
