Imports from third countries: TRACES system soon into force (IT)


Next 19 October the use of the new electronic certification system for imports of organic products will become mandatory. The electronic certificate aims at improving traceability of imported organic products and reduce potential fraud. So, from 19 October 19, only certificates issued via the electronic system will be valid. The electronic certificate is accessible through the TRACES (Trade Control & Expert System) system, the EU electronic system to monitor foodstuffs movements throughout the EU.
