EU-Label for Organic since 05/2018
The legal basis of the organic label is the Eco-Labelling Act. It refers to the requirements of EU legislation on organic farming and provides for fines and imprisonment of up to one year for misuse of the organic label. Details regarding the design and use of the organic label are regulated in the Eco-Labelling Ordinance. In principle, all ingredients of agricultural origin must come from organic farming. Only producers, processors and importers who meet the requirements of organic farming legislation and undergo the prescribed controls are entitled to sell their products under the terms “organic” or “bio”.
