AGREEMENT

between the European Union and the Republic of Chile on trade in organic products

THE EUROPEAN UNION, hereinafter referred to as ‘the Union’,

of the one part, and

THE REPUBLIC OF CHILE, hereinafter referred to as ‘Chile’,

of the other part,

hereinafter referred to collectively as ‘the Parties’,

RECOGNISING their longstanding and strong trade partnership based on the common principles and values reflected in the Agreement establishing an association between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of Chile, of the other part;

RESOLVED to contribute to the development and expansion of their organic sectors by creating new export opportunities;

DETERMINED to foster trade in organic products and convinced that this Agreement will facilitate trade of organically grown and produced products between the Parties;

SEEKING to achieve a high level of respect for the principles of organic production, of guarantee of the control systems and of integrity of organic products;

COMMITTED to enhancing regulatory cooperation on issues related to organic production;

RECOGNISING the importance of reciprocity and transparency in international trade for the benefit of all stakeholders;

BEARING in mind that the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade encourages WTO Members to give positive consideration to accepting as equivalent technical regulations of other Members, even if they differ from their own, provided that they are satisfied that those regulations adequately fulfil the objectives of their own regulations;

NOTING that permanent confidence in the continued reliability of the other Party's assessment procedures and control system is an essential element of such an acceptance of equivalence;

BUILDING on their respective rights and obligations under the Agreement establishing the WTO and other multilateral, regional and bilateral agreements and arrangements to which they are parties;

HAVE AGREED AS FOLLOWS:

Article 1

Purpose

The purpose of this Agreement is to foster trade in organically produced agricultural products and foodstuffs between the Union and Chile, in accordance with the principles of non-discrimination and reciprocity.

Article 2

Definitions

For the purposes of this Agreement, the following definitions shall apply:

(1)

‘equivalence’ means the capability of different laws and regulations, as well as inspection and certification systems to meet the same objectives;

(2)

‘competent authority’ means an official agency that has jurisdiction over the laws and regulations listed in Annex III or IV and is responsible for the implementation of this Agreement;

(3)

‘control authority’ means an authority of a Member State of the Union on which the relevant authority has conferred, in whole or in part, its competence for inspection and certification in the field of organic production in accordance with the laws and regulations listed in Annex III;

(4)

‘control body’ means an independent private entity carrying out inspection and certification in the field of organic production in accordance with the laws and regulations listed in Annex III or IV.

Article 3

Recognition of equivalence

1.   With respect to the products listed in Annex I, the Union recognises the laws and regulations of Chile listed in Annex IV as equivalent to its laws and regulations listed in Annex III.

2.   With respect to the products listed in Annex II, Chile recognises the laws and regulations of the Union listed in Annex III as equivalent to its laws and regulations listed in Annex IV.

3.   In the event of modification, revocation or replacement of, or addition to, the laws and regulations listed in Annex III or IV, the new rules shall be considered equivalent to the other Party's rules unless the other Party objects in accordance with the procedure set out in paragraph 4.

4.   If a Party considers that the laws, regulations or administrative procedures and practices of the other Party no longer meet the requirements for equivalence, it shall issue a reasoned request to the other Party to amend the relevant law, regulation or administrative procedure or practice and provide an adequate timeframe, which shall not be less than three months, for ensuring equivalence. If, following the expiry of that period, the Party concerned still considers that the requirements for equivalence are not met, it may unilaterally suspend the recognition of equivalence of the laws and regulations listed in Annex III or IV as regards the relevant products listed in Annex I or II.

5.   A decision to unilaterally suspend the recognition of equivalence of the laws and regulations listed in Annex III or IV as regards the relevant products listed in Annex I or II may also be taken, following the expiry of a notice period of three months, when one Party has not provided the information required under Article 6 or does not agree to a peer review under Article 7.

6.   With respect to products not listed in Annex I or II, and in accordance with point (b) of Article 8(3), equivalence shall be examined at the request of one Party by the Joint Committee established pursuant to Article 8(1).

Article 4

Import and placing on the market

1.   The Union shall accept the import into its territory, and the placing on the market as organic products, of the products listed in Annex I, provided that those products comply with the laws and regulations of Chile listed in Annex IV and are accompanied by a certificate of inspection, as provided for in Annex V of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1235/2008 of 8 December 2008 laying down detailed rules for implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 as regards the arrangements for imports of organic products from third countries, issued by a control body recognised by Chile and indicated to the Union in accordance with paragraph 3.

2.   Chile shall accept the import into its territory, and the placing on the market as organic products, of the products listed in Annex II, provided that those products comply with the laws and regulations of the Union listed in Annex III and are accompanied by a certificate issued by a control authority or a control body of the Union in accordance with Resolution No 7880 of the National Directorate of the Agricultural and Livestock Service, of 29 November 2011, establishing the minimum content for the organic agriculture certificates, in the framework of Law 20.089.

3.   Each Party recognises the control authorities or control bodies indicated by the other Party as responsible for performing the relevant controls as regards organic products covered by the recognition of equivalence as referred to in Article 3 and for issuing the certificate of inspection as referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 of this Article with a view to their import into and placing on the market in the territory of the other Party.

The importing Party, in cooperation with the other Party, shall assign code numbers to each relevant control authority and control body indicated by the other Party.

2.   The Parties undertake to avoid any misuse of the terms referring to organic production, including derivatives or diminutives such as ‘bio’ and ‘eco’, in relation to products that are covered by the recognition of equivalence referred to in Article 3.

3.   The Parties undertake to protect the Union's organic logo and the Chilean organic logo set out in the relevant laws and regulations against any misuse or imitation.
