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(3) and Article 38(d) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Pursuant to Article 12(1)(c) of Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008, the Commission may at any time suspend the entry of a control body from the list in Annex IV to that Regulation, either in the light of the information received or where the control body has not supplied information required.

Bolicert Ltd was invited by the Commission to provide a valid accreditation certificate and to take appropriate and timely remedial action in accordance with the requirements of Regulation (EC) No 834/2007, but did not reply within the deadline set. The entry of Bolicert Ltd should therefore be suspended in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 until satisfactory information is provided.

Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 should therefore be amended accordingly.
