COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 426/2011

of 2 May 2011

amending Regulation (EC) No 889/2008 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products with regard to organic production, labelling and control

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 28(6) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 24 of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 lays down that the organic production logo of the European Union (‘organic logo of the EU’) is one of the compulsory indications to be used as regards pre-packaged food bearing terms referring to the organic production method as referred to in Article 23(1), while the use of the logo is optional for these products imported from third countries. Consumers should be assured that organic products have been produced in compliance with the requirements set out in Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 and Commission Regulation (EC) No 889/2008 (2). To that end, the traceability of each product carrying the organic logo of the EU at all stages of production, preparation and distribution is an important factor.

(2)

In order to give the consumers the opportunity to inform themselves of the operators and of their products which are subject to the organic farming control system, the Member States should make available, in an appropriate manner, the relevant information on the operators subject to this system, while observing the requirements of the protection of personal data as laid down in Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (3).

(3)

Regulation (EC) No 889/2008 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(4)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The Member States shall duly observe the requirements of the protection of personal data as laid down in Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (4).
