Philippines: amendments to organic legislation regarding certification

The organic sector is in the Philippines regulated by the Republic Act 10068 approved in 2010. The law has supported the growing of organic agriculture in the country. However, its section 17 only allows third party certification to be labelled as “organic”. This presents very high, unsustainable costs for small producers in the country.
