concerning the applicable provisions on organic production and labelling of organic products, and arrangements for imports of organic products adopted under the Agreement on Cooperation and Customs Union between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of San Marino, of the other part [2020/889]

THE EU-SAN MARINO COOPERATION COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Agreement on Cooperation and Customs Union between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of San Marino, of the other part (1), and in particular Articles 7(2), 8(3) c) and 23(1) thereof,

Under the fifth indent of Article 7(1) of the Agreement, the Republic of San Marino is to apply, in respect of countries not members of the Union (‘third countries’), the Union quality legislation where necessary for the proper functioning of the Agreement.

In order to ensure compliance with Union legislation in relation to imports of organic products from third countries into the Republic of San Marino, it is necessary to lay down the relevant arrangements to be applied by its national authorities.

(5)

In order to ensure compliance with Union legislation in relation to organic products prepared or produced in the Republic of San Marino, the relevant arrangements should also be laid down.

(6)

It is also appropriate to provide for a procedure to be followed in the event that new Union legislation on organic production and labelling of organic products is adopted that affects the references to the provisions and the arrangements laid down in this Decision,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
