COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/1935

of 8 November 2021

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/723 as regards the information and data on organic production and labelling of organic products to be submitted by means of the standard model form

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 March 2017 on official controls and other official activities performed to ensure the application of food and feed law, rules on animal health and welfare, plant health and plant protection products, amending Regulations (EC) No 999/2001, (EC) No 396/2005, (EC) No 1069/2009, (EC) 1107/2009, (EU) No 1151/2012, (EU) No 652/2014, (EU) 2016/429 and (EU) 2016/2031 of the European Parliament and of the Council, Council Regulations (EC) No 1/2005 and (EC) No 1099/2009 and Council Directives 98/58/EC, 1999/74/EC, 2007/43/EC, 2008/119/EC and 2008/120/EC, and repealing Regulations (EC) No 854/2004 and (EC) No 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council, Council Directives 89/608/EEC, 89/662/EEC, 90/425/EEC, 91/496/EEC, 96/23/EC, 96/93/EC and 97/78/EC and Council Decision 92/438/EEC (Official Controls Regulation) (1), and in particular Article 25, first paragraph, point (a), Article 113(2), and Article 134, first paragraph, point (f), thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/723 (2) establishes the standard model form to be used in the annual reports submitted by each Member State in accordance with Article 113(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625.

(2)

Section 9 of that standard model form requires Member States to report the organic data in accordance with the templates set out in Annex XIIIc to Commission Regulation (EC) No 889/2008 (3).

(3)

Regulation (EU) 2018/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) lays down new rules on controls of organic production and labelling of organic products, including the controls for the verification of the set-up and functioning of the internal control system of groups of operators, and the re-inspection of a minimum number of operators that are members of a group of operators. In addition, Member States will have to develop a national catalogue of measures to be taken in case of non-compliances, which includes the classification of non-compliances and the corresponding measures. Member States will have to report on the official controls that stem from those new rules and to provide information on the detected non-compliances and the enforcement of measures according to their national catalogue of measures.

(4)

In order to take into account those new rules and requirements in the annual report to be submitted in accordance with Article 113(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625, Section 9 of Part II of the standard model form needs to be updated.

(5)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/723 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Organic Production Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/723 is amended as follows:

1.

Article 2 is replaced by the following:

‘Article 2

Standard model form

Member States shall submit the information and data referred to in Article 113(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 by means of the standard model form set out in the Annex to this Regulation. This shall be done using the electronic version of the standard model form provided in the computerised information management system for official controls (IMSOC). However, for the information and data on organic production and labelling of organic products referred to in Section 9 of Part II of that form, the Organic Farming Information System (OFIS) shall be used.

Member States shall subsequently confirm in the electronic version of the standard model form in IMSOC that Section 9 of Part II of that form has been submitted in OFIS.’;

2.

In the Annex, Section 9 of the standard model form is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Regulation.
