COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2021/1006

of 12 April 2021

amending Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the model of the certificate attesting compliance with the rules on organic production

(Text with EEA relevance)

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 35(9) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex VI to Regulation (EU) 2018/848 sets out the model of the certificate to be issued to any operator or group of operators that has notified its activity to the competent authorities of the Member State in which the activity is carried out and complies with that Regulation. To ensure a harmonised implementation, the model of the certificate contains common elements, which are mandatory in all Member States, such as the name and address, the activities of operators and categories of products. However, competent authorities or, where appropriate, control authorities or control bodies that issue the certificate may decide to require specific additional information such as a detailed list of products, information on land and premises, a list of subcontractors and information on the accreditation of the control body. Therefore, it is appropriate to add a dedicated part to the certificate.

(2)

Regulation (EU) 2018/848 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(3)

In the interest of clarity and legal certainty, this Regulation should apply from the date of application of Regulation (EU) 2018/848,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex VI to Regulation (EU) 2018/848 is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from 1 January 2022.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 12 April 2021.

For the Commission

The President

Ursula VON DER LEYEN
