Brexit: clarifications for organic trade from the UK Government

Following the vote on Brexit, many things will change for Italian and European companies that export and/or import organic products to the UK. The political and trade agreements will be different, and therefore the UK Government has produced some documents that can clarify some issues in relation to trade with the UK from 1 January 2021.

Brexit: what consequences for the EU organic sector?

EOCC, the European Organic Certifiers Council, after a discussion with the British representatives both of the DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs of the United Kingdom) and of the UK Mission UK at the European Union, sent a series of information to the associated Control Bodies  on the consequences of Brexit for EU countries and for the trade in organic products between EU  and the United Kingdom.


Brexit: le conseguenze per il settore biologico dell’Ue

EOCC, the European Organic Certifiers Council, dopo un confronto con i rappresentanti inglesi del DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs del Regno Unito) e della Mission UK nell'Unione europea, ha inviato una serie di informazioni agli OdC associati sulle conseguenze della Brexit per i paesi della Ue ed il commercio di prodotti biologici tra questi ultimi e il Regno Unito .


San Marino, acknowledged by EU as a member state for organic products

The European Commission has officially equated the San Marino (small Republic existing in the north of Italy) supply chain to that of the other EU member states. It will therefore pass from a third country to a Member State, and its products will be able to adopt the famous green leaf, the official Community logo used for certified organic products. In such a way, farmers and processors working in the organic sector will be able to export their product freely to European Union countries. This decision concludes a long and complex diplomatic process begun in 2017.
